Africa

There's nowhere like it on the planet for wildlife, wild lands, and rich traditions that endure. Prepare to fall in love.
Africa is for me a place of the soul. It is the wildlife, the great deserts and the savannah plains that speak of eternity, and the people who bring such warmth to the experience. It is the Serengeti and the Sahara, Etosha and Amboseli, the Namib and the forests of Madagascar. It is drawing near to a black-maned lion in the Kalahari, or watching the hyenas stream across the plains of Liuwa, or sleeping in a luxury lodge or remote wilderness campsite and staring up at the stars in utter, blissful silence.
