Yes, yes, yes!!! This is my number one to do list/bucket list!!!!! I'm obsessed with african animals (ask my family!). The expense is a major deterrent though, so it's something I'll have to put off for a few years yet. My fave african animals are meerkats, but I would have to say cheetahs and lions would be up there as well. To see them in their natural environment would be the most mind-blowing thing I've ever done. Mandy E.
I don't like travelling, or being without my home comforts and basic amenities. I also don't like feeling scared or in danger, so wouldn't go on safari. I must admit that being able to wild animals in their natural environment would be pretty amazing though.
MY husband & I went on safari twice in Zimbabwe, way back in the early '90's. It was very cheap back then! We slept in a treehouse 1 night, & I was wandering what animals would be walking around the tree, if any, while we were sleeping! On the 2nd day, we were in a clearing in the jeep, when a herd of elephants came through the trees. We were asked NOT to use our camera as the clicking noise may startle them. 1 of the elephants came up to us, & it took my breath away, (so to speak.) It had VERY long eye lashes, i noticed. I remember sitting there, staring at it, thinking, "This is better than having a million dollars" It was a wonderful experience I'll never forget.
