Tangier Morocco is just a short boat ride from Spain across the Straits of Gibraltar.
A walking tour of the Kasbah in Tangier Morocco
At lunch I couldn't read the bottle but was hoping it was a universal shape
It was not like riding a horse!
I wasn't real sure if Arabic camels understood "Giddy Up Go?" Many people in the desert still use camels for transportation in everyday life.
I wasn't too sure about the area and hung on tight to my belongings.
Sekenani Boarding Primary School in Narok outside of the Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
While visiting the school I donated pens, erasers and postcards to the teachers to use in their classrooms.
No binoculars needed!!
Out on a game drive in the Samburu Game Reserve, we encountered numerous animals. Although binoculars are recommended for safaris we rarely needed them.
Visiting a Samburu Village in Kenya
The Samburu people are nomads and live on a diet of cows blood and milk so they are are not tied down to the land. And NO we did not have lunch or dinner with them!!!!
We crossed the equator numerous times in while traveling in Kenya. It was the second time on the second continent that I straddled the equator, split between the northren and southern hemispheres! Can I do it a third time??
Cape of Good Hope, South Africa
We encountered numerous baboons here and watched as they stole someone's lunch. We had been warned, it seems she preferred the sandwich since she ate it first!
Cage Diving with the Great White Sharks
The Great White Sharks frequent the coastal beaches in South Africa and there are several companies that provide a Great White Shark Eco-Adventure. The experience is thrilling and considered by many as a "must see," and I agree.
The Table Mountain Cable Car
The Table Mountain Cable Car is anther "must see" while in Cape Town...that is weather permitting. The car does not run during high winds. If you see the mountain you need to go, then and there because Table Mountain is easily and frequently covered by the "table cloth"...cloud cover. And be sure to dress warm, even though it was warm on the bottom it was cold up top.. the gift shop lady had a good day selling knit hats!
Umbhaba Lodge, Hazyview South Africa
The peaceful lodge is located just a few minutes from the famous Kruger National Park in northeastern South Africa. If you are lucky you can see zebra, wildebeest and impala roaming the grounds. Unfortunately all we saw were the evidence that they had been there!
Not the southernmost point in Africa as most believe!
What a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean does NOT meet the Atlantic here.
THE FAMOUS "BIG 5" in South Africa
We are extremely lucky in that we saw the "Big 5" yet again, this time in South Africa. Two safaris two times seeing the "Big 5" can I be lucky enough for a "hat trick?"
And the Endangered African Penguin, formally called the "Jackass" Penguin due to its braying.
Our treehouse, #5 at Marc's Treehouse Adventure Bush Camp near Hoedspruit South Africa...and yes living there was certainly an adventure. It was not for the faint-hearted or those looking for a pampered week.
