From September 6-10, National Geographic magazine will transform Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal into an African experience to celebrate the magazine?s rare single-topic September issue, devoted entirely to Africa. The centerpiece will be a photography exhibit featuring larger-than-life images from noted National Geographic magazine 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 broadcast 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.
