Once again — it happened — life just took over and the idea of writing a blog was shoved further and further into the foggy recesses. I could swear that it’s now almost time for the new safari season to start.
Last year was possibly the busiest I’ve had, with nine safaris. Now that may not sound like a lot but one was 28 days long, two were 21 days long and another was 16 days long. The others were all 10 to 14 days. Uhuh, that’s a lot of wildlife time!
Strangely this year is not quite as full. Safaris finish on 8 October which means most of October, all of November and December are free. So if anyone is carried away by the photographs of others enjoying the safari life – just send me an email and we can arrange a safari for later this year. But not over Christmas – that is family time.
I also need to work NOW on a couple of safaris for January and February 2014.
So October, November, December, January and February are all wide open.
The Mc Governs safari seems like years ago already. Mike, Kathy, you’ll just have to return soon. The Johnsons, OBriens, Marshalls: Thank you all for coming out and making sure that your safaris were fun. The Duncans – Marcy coping with seven men in her family – as the rappers say “respect!”
The Coes and the Jansens — as always Ken, thank you. It was great to do a safari with the whole family and to meet the Jansens and make new friends.
Bruce Leven and friends – that was an epic safari. A bit like one of those long dramatic sweeping films – the Ben Hur of safaris! 28 Days. Jim, Herman and Ed thank you all too for a wonderful long safari. And Jim, thank you for supporting me so graciously with my book.
And finally the Watts family and all the tremendous fun that was had on your safari.
On going through photos recently I realised that we witnessed three kills happening while on safari last year. That’s certainly a record for me.
Enjoy the photos and please direct friends and interested people to my website where they can see photos of safari life.
ps: in case you are wondering why there is a photograph of elephant dung in the back of the pick-up, we burn it to keep tsetse flies away.
pps: I’m sorry I don’t know how to make captions for the photos. Will learn how!
