In 2001 I went to Namibia for a three month fieldwork in human geography. I never managed to leave again, except for short holidays.
I've got a soft spot for southern Africa and safari life.
Karen Blixen have said: "There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you have drunk half a bottle of champagne - Bubbling over from heartfelt gratitude for being alive".
In other words, it is worth a bit of frustrations and TiA to experience the magic.
