If you have been wondering why this site has been very quiet for the last month it is because I have been away in Africa on safari. We travelled around Botswana, and up to Zambia, seeing an amazing array of animals at close range (as we were camping in the bush). After that we did a second safari from a location in the Limpopo district of South Africa. It was an adventure - quite different to N.Z. where there is nothing in the wild to harm us.
