I promise, I will blog about my recent trip to Africa as soon as I go through all the photos and pick and edit the best ones for the blog posts I have in mind.
I just wanted you all to know that I am back, in good health, and pretty much raring to go (although I have a lot of blog posts to catch up on).
The safari was an out and out success, I would say. I saw way more lions than I ever have, had two sightings of leopards, those elusive wee beasties, and actually managed to see a honey badger in the wild for the first time ever (pitch black at night under spotlights so there is no photo unfortunately). I can have it verified if you want.
I also got the chance to catch up with old friends from Saudi Arabia who live in Johannesburg and spent the day out and about at the local lion park, where I fed a giraffe. They had lived within 20 minutes of the park for most of their lives and had never been. I think they owe me for taking them there.
That’s me and a very comfortable lion cub. He loved getting tickled behind the ear.
Well, that’s it for today. I will continue to edit and select photos and will see you all around. I trust we all got along well and are in fine spirits.
