Dreaming of Africa

Remember I said I’d be making a home somewhere else for a while? Well, I’ve long dreamed of going to Africa…a wild continent full of exotic animals I’ve only previously watched on “Animal Planet”. When you receive this I will be en route!

I’ll be working for Biosphere Expeditions, the Non Profit Wildlife Conservation company.  I’ll be leading seven (perhaps eight) groups of volunteers that want to participate in our project studying leopards, cheetahs and elephants.

It’s a dream come true for me, combining my love of animals,  wildlife conservation, travel, and people.  Here’s more information on the expedition: http://www.biosphere-expeditions.org/2-week-expeditions/wildlife-volunteering-vacations-with-leopards-elephants-cheetahs-in-na.html if you are curious.

This expedition just won a prestigious National Geographic Award (as they are always winning awards for their work around the world) so it’s quite popular at the moment and several of the slots are already completely booked.

I’ll be posting pictures and my impressions here on the blog, as well as insights into the important conservation work we are doing in Namibia. In between groups I plan to travel as much as I can.

[Nope, no motorcycles involved. This is my other love.]
