We’ve gone wildlife-tastic this issue, bringing you plenty of ideas for getting close to nature. Mark Stratton’s story of a pioneering eco-camp in Cambodia (p22) is inspiring, but makes you realise how vital it is that travellers support such initiatives. Meanwhile, I’m just back from one of the most extraordinary wildlife trips of my life – see where on p74. Both stories highlight how tourism can be a power for good.
The same can be said for Wanderlust. We often hear from readers how the magazine has changed their life. If this applies to you, then please do let us know as we’d like to feature some of your stories in our special 25th anniversary autumn issue; email email@example.com with the subject line: ‘ Wanderlust changed my life’.
And we hope to meet with many of you at a couple of upcoming events at London’s Royal Geographical Society. We will be holding an exclusive reader evening with the Belize Tourism Board in September, and an extra-special edition of the Wanderlust World Guide Awards in October. Please do come along to both (p17).
Happy travels, Lyn Hughes Editor-in-chief/co-founder
