The jeep safari came about to see the Blue Fish through this little snippet on mythology I found.

The story goes that just before Cleopatra left Egypt on her journey to the Bozburun Penninsular in Turkey,she was given a necklace by Mark Anthony made from semi-preciouse stones called Lapiz-Lazuli,these gems are a vivid blue in colour.

One morning when Cleopatra went down to the river to bathe she was overcome by a deep sense of sadness brought on by the absence of her lover.
Tears fell from her eyes and fell on the necklace,a token of Anthonys love for her.
The gems heavy with the Tears Of Sadness broke and the jewels fell into the water,on hitting the water each stone was turned by Aphrodite the goddess of love into one of these elusive fish we look for today,each fish representing a tear of sadness for a missing loved one and for the memory of Anthonys love for Cleopatra.
