It has been said that the Wildebeest Migration of East Africa is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, but has anyone mentioned the other animals which take part in this incredible display of courage and honour?
Today is the day we got to add "frightened" to that long and otherwise completely happy and excited list of emotions which describe this journey. Today we were frightened in a way I've not been frightened before.
I've cared for dozens of these animals over the years, neglected and discarded exotic pets I've helped to rescue and recover. This is really part of the hope and the magic of this journey: to see animals where they truly belong.
Back when my wife and I first married we promised ourselves that someday we'd travel to Africa and see the elephants and lions. We just fulfilled that promise by celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on safari to Tanzania.
