Yes I have a million pics of my trip, plus Egypt and Amsterdam.
My first trip to Africa was Zimbabwe and Namibia in 2001.
We canoed the Zambezi, saw Vic Falls, and then flew to Namibia. We were in the desert for 9/11 which was a very strange experience not having access to radio or TV or phones or newspapers for 2 days. After dinner on September 11th, the manager of the lodge told us to pour ourselves a stiff drink and he had some terrible news to tell us. Without CNN to instantly refer to, is it still real?
Namibia is a totally awesome place like no other on this planet with the bonus of good German bakeries. We saw desert adapted eles, rhinos and cheetahs.
Since we bonded as a group of strangers, we went back in 2003 to Botswana and South Africa.
Botswana is an African success story in good governance and a unique eco system.
I enjoyed South Africa but that was the scenery on the Garden route to Capetown, not the wildlife.
In the Masai Mara, we came across Disney filming "African Cats"! The scene we saw filming was used in the movie.
