Once again, I traveled aboard my favorite ship in the world, the National Geographic Explorer. Out at sea, the air is pure, the wildlife so free, and the water constantly changing color. Folks I talk to tend to (somewhat erroneously) divide travelers into those who get seasick and those who don’t. I discovered mine on this trip, halfway across the stormy Atlantic amid 25-foot waves that turned the last bit of my journey into a 48-hour roller coaster ride. My Atlantic crossing offered both adventure and comfort and it provided me with a once-in-a-lifetime expedition from one cape to another, from South America to southern Africa, from one side of the world to the other. August 27, 2015 by Karen Hand 1 Comment One of the world’s most profitable commodities is ivory. After a five-year hiatus, National Geographic Channel (NGC) in conjunction with National Geographic Magazine (NGM) relaunches the critically acclaimed documentary series Explorer, as a monthly series. Some 30,000 African elephants are slaughtered every year for their tusks, while thousands of people are attacked, raped and murdered in the path of destruction paid for, in part, by the global illegal ivory trade.
National Geographic Fellow and NG contributor, Bryan Christy, devises a new tool to investigate how illegal ivory is moved within Africa and outside of its borders. Further highlighting the importance of Christy’s efforts, Nat Geo WILD will premiere on the same night. Each monthly episode of the new Explorer will take a similar deep dive inside a story from the pages of the current issue of National Geographic Magazine.
Catch all the exciting happenings on the National Geographic Channel’s Facebook page, as well as the Nat Geo WILD’s Facebook page. I can’t believe that people still buy the ivory when then know that people are killing these poor elephants to get it.

Traveling by sea is far more adventurous than flying or driving and really lets you feel the size and shape of our tremendous blue planet. I went up, and then I went down, up and down, up and down, the bow smashing through bigger and bigger waves until my stomach couldn’t handle it anymore. Before I reached the gateway of Cape Town and the promise of Africa, I bravely endured my bout of mal de mer by climbing way up to the all-glass observation deck of the National Geographic Explorer and slumping in a chair, dazed by the stormy horizon on every direction.
It brought me to some of the remotest islands in the world and introduced me to some splendid wildlife.
Follow the journey of Bryan Christy, a veteran reporter of wildlife trafficking wars, as he monitors the path of ivory poachers in Africa through National Geographic’s Explorer series, which premiers on August 30.
The contents of this storage area represents approximately 400 elephants that have been killed for their tusks.
He uses an artificial elephant tusk, which has been embedded with a custom-made GPS and satellite based tracking system to track the people who kill elephants and to learn what roads, ports, cities and countries their ivory plunder follows.
The one-hour special, Elephant Queen, takes an intimate look inside a majestic herd of African elephants.
Viewers will venture not only to the most remote corners of the globe, but also to the farthest reaches of the mind and deepest crevices of history – on an urgent mission of discovery.

Both National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo WILD are highlighting both the beauty of the elephant kingdom and the brutality, rained down upon it in these programs.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. If you really want to understand the globe that sits on your desk, then go spend a few weeks at sea. In point of fact, I think there’s a sliding threshold and that when it comes to seasickness, everyone (even the saltiest sea captain) has a tipping point. As miserable I might have felt, I was so grateful for the experience of observing a part of the ocean that few will ever see. I believe every good adventure is made up of good and bad that’s what makes the adventure memorable. Christy’s journey follows extremely dangerous treks of tracking Africa’s most notorious militias and terrorist groups, all in an effort to stop the trade in its tracks.
