the beginning

in may 2009, we went on safari to zimbabwe and botswana, africa. this is the journal i kept while there.
written while in planes, trucks, boats, by candlelight and even once in a canoe!
please ignore the poor grammar, that takes thought (and spell check) and these words are written usually in haste and in the excitement of the moment.

if you've ever wondered what it might be like to take an african safari, this is one account, of what one was like. i truly hope you will enjoy reading and even feel a sense of place.

it must be noted, this book is appropriate for all ages, with the exception of pages 47, 48 and 49.
as mentioned, it was written in the moment, and while in africa, some of those moments can sometimes be terrifying. so please be warned, it may be best to skip those (language) pages, ahem. in the interest of authenticity, the entire book was scanned.

besides the lovely people and wildlife that we met, the main characters throughout the book are: chuck, my husband, lindy, my sister, kary, the fourth member of our party, who joined us in victoria falls (the first time for us to meet her) and myself, lori.
