Today we are writing about a safari organised by us for Marie-Paule Schaijes, a vet in France who has just sold her practice so she can volunteer in Africa. What an asset she would be! Her extensive knowledge of African wildlife, and in particular of birds, is show-cased by her exquisite photographs.
When I asked her about this, she said "It is my hobby - and I had the very best teacher, my Dad, who would always tell me - you can do better!"

At Lake Manze, her guides were Alfred and Zahor. At Mdonya the guides were Jumanne and Thomas.
When you go on safari, so much depends on your guides and they seem to have done a really good job for this guest! Please see below a special offer which is on at the moment for these camps.
