Thanks to the project Getting Reddy, after the visit of our Tanzanian friends and partners to the Amazon in April 2012, for the first time the Xixuau community leaders undertook an adventurous trip to Africa. A Brazilian delegation went to Tanzania to visit the area of the forest which is protected through the project. There, the Caboclos could admire the stunning mountains of the Udzungwa, one of the richest biodiversity hotspots in Africa. They could also see wild animals in Mikumi National Park and the pristine beaches of the Tanzanian coast. During the many meetings with the African authorities, the Amazonian leaders explained their method on how to protect the forest through ecotourism and the sustainable management of forest resources.
