That was certainly the case for me.
Last year I finally managed to make that dream come true and in the process found any concerns many hold about personal safety and difficult travelling in Africa something of a myth.
The safari took me through Kenya and Tanzania, with African Travel Specialists, following the migration of the herds. I cannot recommend their excellent and personalised services and emphasis on ethical travel that gives back to the countries and people you visit highly enough!
My safari was amongst the most enriching and extraordinary experiences of my life, changing my perception of the world and its complex eco systems forever.
As for the Kenyan and Tanzanian people, they were extraordinary. The middle classes there are on the move and both countries are dynamic, inspiring and exciting places to visit.
I think these photos will pretty much speak for themselves!
