I am 11 days away from crossing another item off my bucket list. In preparation for this trip I have been watching live safaris from Africa, every day, twice a day for 3 hours for the past 3 years. I have learned a lot about birds, mammals, plants, habits, life and death in the animal kingdom.
I know that there's no guarantee I will see all animals, they pretty much have a mind of their own, but the mere thought of seeing elephants, lions, leopards and an African sunsets is enough for me.
This will be the first time I've ever flown internationally so 15 hours over and almost 17 back is a bit taunting but it's all part of the experience.
I will post photos on here as soon as I'm able but I will be basically off the grid for 3 weeks. I will be blogging on my Wordpress site http://idreamofafrica.home.blog whenever I have a connection.
