The thrill of seeing African wildlife never lessens. For those who venture onto the Serengeti and expansive plains of the great continent never leave without having an experience indelibly engraved on their souls. Not only is the wildlife endlessly forthcoming in its magnificence, the scenery is often jaw dropping. As a photographer, when visiting Africa, I always find that magnificence with little to no effort.
My first trip to Africa was memorably the best. The first of most life changing events has a special impact that launches them into a category of their own. I was on a photo safari with 9 other people. I was the novice in the group which meant I had mentors – willing or not – around me the entire trip. Our lodging came with all the amenities of luxury camping. Other than a minor glitch requiring shower repair while out in the bush, I couldn’t have been happier if I were in a 5 Star Hilton.
