If you’re interested in animal travel, you’ll find safari articles on my Namibia and South Africa pages, as well as other adventures with animals in the wild in Galapagos in Ecuador and in British Columbia in Canada.
Note: My trip to Uganda was a hosted press trip, but all opinions are my own and no one from Uganda Tourism or any of the companies mentioned reviewed or approved my articles.
