Several of our members went on a photo safari in Africa and will share their adventures with us.
Africa is a vast continent with so much to experience. The focus of this presentation will be the game parks of Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. South Africa will also be highlighted. Experience the watering holes where elephants, lions and impalas drink during the same time frame. Relive with us a lion guarding his kill, a congress of baboons, a dazzle of zebras and a pod of hippos. Then join us as we mingle with natives at their homestead. View the incredible Victoria Falls. There is so much to experience in this part of Africa. Join us and learn a bit about this remarkable area.
