A Birthday Boy Speaks...

As it's my birthday, I am taking a day off from writing the blog, and as you will have seen, left it in the very capable hands of Fiona... Thanks Fi....

I couldn't however resist popping on and adding my quick thoughts about yesterday’s great adventure with the Lions, as it was a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. It was not just the various animals that we saw that made it so special, although they were pretty spectacular, it was also the earnest zeal that Colin conveyed to us during our time at Horseback Africa.

Colin’s passion for his latest project is obvious and he is so eager to tell you everything he knows that he delivers his words like a machine-gun, just pausing for the occasional breath. I don’t think there was a single second he was not imparting some interesting fact about the animals, their habitat and the environment in the four and a half hours that we were there. His enthusiasm was infectious and made the whole experience come alive in an unbelievable way. If you are ever in this part of the world, you would not be doing yourself justice by missing out on this fabulous experience.

Okay, back to my day off....
