Hello everyone im Victor, and im from a small village in Gloucestershire,Uk. My wife and I went on our first safari in 2013 to South Africa. We stayed at Gomo Gomo Lodge in the Greater Kruger area. It was then that Africa stole my heart, and it has been my passion since. We returned back to South Africa last year, staying in Balule and Sabi Sands. This year im visiting family who live in the Eastern Cape, so we have organised a safari in the area. I am lookimg forward to explore the more wilderness parts of Africa, and will appreciate any shared knowledge.

Welcome Victor, you're among kindred spirits who've all had their hearts stolen by Africa. The photos and trip reports do well to hold you over until your next journey!

Welcome to the forum.  Lots of stolen hearts here.  Eastern Cape won't be far off for you.

Welcome Victor - going on your third safari this year will be excellent therapy!

 

Gloucestershire with the Cotswolds is a beautiful part of England which I've had the pleasure of visiting a number of times.

Thanks for all the kind messages!

 

Yes i'm very fortunate to live in the Cotswolds where there are plenty of walks my dog and I to explore.

 

Although our Eastern Cape safari is in May, so not long away now.....it still feels too long away :)
