Online PR News – 21-January-2018 – Soweto, South Africa – When I was a kid we used to roam the hidden corners of Soweto on our bicycles. Soweto’s not all built-up, you know… There are hills and dams and wetlands. We swam in the rivers and we hunted birds. We weren’t starving or anything, but boys will be boys. We shot them with catapults or we caught them in traps made from an old bicycle wheel and an onion sack.’ I grew up to be a top birding guide in Soweto and South Africa. Talk about doing what you love. Birding changed the way I interact with my environment, and I want it to do the same for the youth. I’m on a mission to make birding the new hip. rnrnRaymond takes a visitor on a historical journey through South Africa's rich history.
