Thank you, all, for the welcoming notes! I started with fly-in safaris and now doing only self-driving ;-) combining camping and lodges (sometimes I need to eat and take a shower ;-)
Favourite countries - Botswana. Places (it maybe sounds strange but) : Kalahari ! There is something special there. Maybe there is no time?
Last year I discovered also Hwange, Zimbabwe. Going back this September. Actually I think, that I live when I am in Africa. All time in between I am earning money for living ;-)
So, the life starts for me in two weeks :-)
That is the energy you get watching animals that makes you addicted. And connection to wild, to bush, to eternity, to the present and the past, to All, to the existence itself.
Sometimes I also take the snapshots of life but I don't consider it as the main reason to visit Africa. However, I even won a 5-days safari by Kwando.
It is difficult to say what is my favourite animal... They all are special characters and I am always eager to know them better.
I am happy to know you better as well and share my experience :-)
