You are living my dream. So jealous. Amazing TR. The outdoor Shabbos was probably what it was like a few thousand years ago ;)

I read the TR on my phone before looking at the pics on the PC. If you are reading this TR on your phone you need to read it again. The pics are great.

In this pic, is the bird sitting on the buffalo or did you happen to catch it as it passed by?


Buffalo

They sit on the buffalo & eat the insects climbing on him.. same idea as the fish that latch on to sharks

Was there a vote? Who makes that decision

See the Wiki. Feel free to submit other posts, as long as they are not your own. It's just a way to highlight good posts which people may have missed as it is impossible to keep track of every thread.

Could you discuss a little about the costs of all these lodgings that you did?
Cost is one of the things holding me back from going. Was supposed to be going this coming October but realized that my dream safari would run me around 8k so its gonna have to wait a little
