I dreamed of africa

This is the stuff that dreams are made of and for me it was a child hood dream , i love animals and to see them in there natural state was something else.Basically i was gob smacked the whole trip, i traveled with my sister tara whom id only met in my early twenties so this trip meant alot to me in so many ways . Africa is hard to describe in words it can be spiritually up lifting and your worst nightmare i love it and to me the serengeti was a big highlight of this adventure ..

One of the main reasons i came here was to see animals in there natural state and not cooped up in a zoo, i wasnt dissapointed you just never know what your going to see next.The only animal that proved to abit elusive was the leopard which is part of there nature to live secret lives shall we say but nyou could be lucky and see one .

We did run into other people doing the same thing but there wasnt many, you can pretty well avoid seeing other people entirely if you want the place is so big, theres certain rules installed for the protection of you and the animals which is good to know .The wildlife here will touch your heart and leave you wanting more of course evryone has there own experience and the highlight of that maybe making eye contact with your favourite animal,personally i have no favourites there all gods creatures struggling to survive in a changing world its up to us to do what we can .

    Dave, thanks for the "heads up." You seem to have had a great time. Anne & I are off to Africa in 8 weeks. Can't wait. Must remember the toilet paper!
