South African lifestyle television programme Top Billing recently visited Kariega Game Reserve to interview American film and television star Texas Battle. Texas, better known as Marcus Forrester from The Bold & The Beautiful, enjoyed a safari weekend at Kariega with 26 young South Africans supported by the Texas Battle Foundation. The feature was aired on South African television in August 2016 and you can watch it as the first feature on the Top Billing video.
Top Billing Features Inspirational Texas Battle on Safari
The video shows the diverse wildlife and landscape at Kariega as the backdrop to the discussion with Texas. We learn more about the inspirational work that Texas Battle is doing with South African youth, what he enjoys most about his hands-on involvement with the children and what he has learnt most from his experiences supporting over 130 young South Africans.
Kariega Foundation Sponsors Safari Weekend
For two consecutive years the Kariega Foundation have sponsored a safari weekend for Texas Battle and some of the youth in his Foundation. The children, mostly from the Joe Slovo informal settlement in Cape Town, were inspired and excited to experience and learn about the wonders of African wildlife. We look forward to them growing up to help protect and conserve our environment.
Both Texas and Kariega Game Reserve were delighted to have this uplifting initiative covered by Top Billing.
