When you travel 30+ hours to get home from Southern Africa, jet lag can be a whopper. But a great use of time at 4 AM is photo management. African light is naturally stunning. Morning light differed from mid-day, and sundown yet again different. It was easy for my little Canon G-10 to document how well we ate these past several weeks — I wanted to share some meals with you. In fact, I have about a dozen blog posts in various stages formed from this trip, so stay tuned. See at bottom for info on the tour we took. Bon appétit, African style!
About The Trip: May/June 2010 – Larry and I visited Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and had a day trip in South Africa on an “Ultimate Africa” Safari by Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT). Staying in authentic safari lodges and tent camps in prime game-viewing locations, the trip was, in a word: Magical. Mado, 15-year seasoned guide kept our group of 11 moving constantly, fed often, cocktailed at just the right times and well informed on any species of mammal, reptile, bird or plant we saw on 20 or so game drives. Larry and I have traveled with several tour companies; this was our first with OAT (a fellow traveler on our trip around Eastern Europe turned us on to this) and I can say with all honesty, this earned a spot at the top of our list. If you ever book with OAT, please tell them Patti & Larry Londre referred you – full disclosure: OAT travelers earn travel credits this way. Bon voyage!
