The South African Bush: From Sunsets & Male Cubs to Elephants & Chameleons

0

You can never predict the future, it is not a gift that is possessed by human kind. One can never wake up with an exact path described, planned and executed. There is too much in the world that can change your course and alter the way your path winds. The South African bush is the same. Each of us head out every morning with some sort of plan, however, we all know inside that nothing out here can be guaranteed. This is what we live for and what, as a guest, one experiences. This is what drives us to explore. and how we strive to live our lives in this wilderness. Taking each step with anticipation and with an open mind. Come and live our week of surprises with us.
