Hello all!

My name is Taylor. My husband and I (Pat) are excited to plan our first trip to Africa this year and I look forward to all the advice that I can get from Safaritalk.

 

I've wanted to go to Africa since I was a child, and we're finally at a point where we can realize this dream.

 

I look forward to being part of the community!

 

Best, 

 

Taylor

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.

Welcome Pat and Taylor!  Prepare yourself, safari will change your life.  I said "just one" and now I'm going on my 4th.  You've found a great group of folks to help you prepare!

I'm from Chicago myself. In fact I'm now in Northbrook,Illinois visiting my mother. I've already been on 10 safaris, and am going on three this year. In 2018 I'll be going on two.
