      Thanks, we had a great time and some very interesting animal encounters. Have starting sorting out the photos – there are a lot so it’s going to take a while . . .

    Lovely picture of the lioness and her cubs. Have a fabulous trip, and I hope you have fun with the new lens. Looking forward to the pics.

      Thanks Reggie! We had a great time there. Willie did really well with his new camera and lenses, and enjoyed experimenting with them. He did some half-day courses with a local photographer before the trip – which helped him with the basics of DSLR photography. But he gained a lot of practical experience on the trip. I’ll be posting his photos in the coming weeks.

        Oh how exciting – I look forward to seeing some of his pics with the new camera and lenses. Glad you had such a wonderful time up there.

      Thanks Laura! 🙂 We had a fun time, saw lots of big kitties. Willie went on one official night drive (where a game ranger goes out with you) and got to see 3 female lions who had 10 small cubs between them. SO cute!

      Hi Eha! Sorry to hear that you were sick. Are you better now? We had a lovely trip – took hundreds of photos, so I’ve got lots of work to do sorting and editing them.
