“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
We noticed this African proverb chiseled into the wall in the Johannesburg airport as we passed through there, and it perfectly describes our trip, which was perhaps the most personal travel experience we've ever had.

She’s visited Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Botswana and South Africa, and recently returned to some of her favorite haunts in East Africa. “This was probably the best Safari I’ve been on (so far)” Mauree says. “I took so many pictures, almost 4000, that I don’t know where to begin. Each time I go thru the photos, I’m reminded of a sighting I forgot, there were so many good ones to remember. When I booked this trip, my goal was to see as many of the big cats as I could. They are my favorite, along with the other predators. So going to the Serengeti and the Mara was perfect. I saw more cats in the first few days of this trip...
