TELL ME MORE ABOUT: Safari in Africa

 

Welcome to my new series: TELL ME MORE ABOUT: where I will be sharing resources from my favorite past adventures around our planet during this time when we cannot travel due to COVID-19. In the next weeks, I will share about all 10 trips in my recent article on Ms Magazine and I wanted you to have access to the photos, articles and videos that I produced from these experiences. For now, I hope you find inspiration until we can all begin to wander around the world again.

My first safari in Africa was in Tanzania and Kenya with Abercrombie and Kent. It was also my 100th and 101st country visited which was an exciting part of my 50 things before I turned 50 project.
