FRANKFORT, KY—The Cross Kentucky Trails Project initiative seeks to map the trails of the Commonwealth by incorporating GPS-collected data from individual self-mapping efforts into the Commonwealth’s Award-Winning Geographic Information System in order to identify all of Kentucky’s numerous trails. Additionally, this site provides references to additional Internet Mapping Sites, GPS services and related links regarding the Cross Kentucky Trail Project. Kentucky is an adventure waiting to happen and this project embodies the spirit of those who appreciate the wide range of recreational opportunities here in the Commonwealth. The state is truly the premier frontier for Adventure Tourism in the nation, enhancing the economies of many rural areas as it attracts lovers of the outdoors and adventure seekers from across the US and globe. The Cross Kentucky Trail project is central to the success of adventure travel in Kentucky. The trail system resulting from this initiative will be a figurehead for the ability of adventure travel to positively impact all regions of the state, from rural to urban. The First Lady and the Lt. Governor's Office are spearheading the effort with the primary goal of completing a trail that stretches from the Eastern Coal Fields to the Western Coal Fields of Kentucky. If all goes according to plan, portions of this multi-use trail system will be utilized by many that will be attending the Equestrian Games in 2010.

LAKE SUCCESS, NY--- Together with Tsavo National Park, Mkomazi Game Reserve forms one of the largest and most important ecosystems on earth. Linked to the legendary conservationists Tony Fitzjohn and George Adamson, African Wildlife Preservation Trust has worked since 1989 on the front lines in the battle to save the critically endangered African black rhino. The black rhino has been re-introduced into Mkomazi from South Africa after heavy poaching, overgrazing, deliberate burning, and illegal hunting had wiped out its black rhino populations. The seven black rhino live in the sanctuary which also has a waterhole and wallow for the rhinos. There is also an underground observation point. Baobab Expeditions gives visitors an up close and personal look at the Save the Rhino foundation while donating a fixed fee per person to the organization and travelers automatically become a member of the foundation when they visit. Travel in your own personal 4x4, feast on gourmet African fare, and stay in luxury wilderness lodges and camps along the way. Other highlights of this safari include visits to Nairobi, Massai Mara, Lake Nakuru National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Serengeti National Park, and an optional extension to Zanzibar Island.
