A travel journal documenting one of four trips to Africa-South Africa and Botswana in October of 2012. Later to add other entries from previous travels to Paris, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Mykonos, Santorini, Athens, Costa Rica and Peru including my hike to the top of Machu Picchu.
Other countries visited on safari in Africa including Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia.
Sitting in the darkness knowing you are surrounded be three large male lions is a heart racing moment in life. An occasional light from the vehicle is scanned across the black night to check the positioning of these magnificent relaxed creatures. But as an experienced safari goer I now realize things can change in an instant. The safety of the vehicle and the knowledge and experience of your guides and trackers may reassure you but the element of surprise is always in the realm of possibility-it is no Disney World.
