The Green Hills of Africa Arrive in New York City
Published August 29, 2005

New York City's transportation hub, Grand Central Terminal, will host an exhibit featuring photography from National Geographic's September issue. The magazine is devoting that entire issue to the continent of Africa.

National Geographic Magazine will transform Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall into a lifelike African experience to celebrate the magazine's special September issue, devoted entirely to Africa, starting Tuesday, September 6.

The centerpiece of the installation will be a photography exhibit featuring
larger-than life images from noted National Geographic photographers that will
take visitors on a virtual tour of Africa. The five-day event will also feature activities that will allow guests to experience Africa's many rich and varied cultures, including: appearances by famed National Geographic photographers; a jumbo screen, live webcast of African wildlife from the Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana; interactive experiences; sponsor  exhibits and special offers; and sweepstakes drawings including a six-day safari to Botswana and South Africa, and a 13-day trip to Tanzania and Zanzibar.
