    That first photo is breathtaking! This is travelling at its best; being in nature and seeing animals in their natural habitat. I’ve never been to Africa but I have a hunch this will be one of my favorite destinations, apart from India and Thailand. What puts me off for the moment is their somewhat unsafely environment; with all these refugees and terrorist threats around the world I kind of lost my mojo. Regardless, you guys do such great work with this blog, keep it up!
