Possibly a poor choice of username if I want to be anonymous!   Cambridge UK, not US.  

 

Safari seems to be right at the epicentre of my personal venn diagram - I'm a part time photographer (mainly weddings, but they can get pretty wild...),  I do a lot of work helping firms expand in Africa and I'm a farmer's son so grew up with animals.    After being married for a long time to someone who didnt like the idea, I finally went on safari for the first time last year and fell in love with the place!  (Mashatu, Botswana).  

 

I've got 2 more booked and am even thinking of extending my trip to do some kind of guiding course, then looking for a role where I can combine photography and helping people.  Lets see...  :)

I think we can guess now you told us.  <_< 

 

Welcome to Safaritalk. Look forward to chatting with you - and to hearing about your experiences to date and in the future (which sounds very interesting).


Waiting again... for the next time again

@cambridge_mike I think your identity is safe - there are a few Mikes in Cambridge. I lived there many years ago (but I'm not called Mike). Welcome to Safaritalk and good luck with your plans. Maybe start with a Mashatu trip report?  :)

Welcome! I am also from Cambridgeshire originally but now live in Norwich. Look me up if you are in the area! :) sounds like you owe us at least one trip report, hopefully more soon! ;) looking forward to hearing more about your travels! :)
If an experience is amazing enough to be "once in a lifetime," I want to do it every year.
