Alan Feldstein is currently on photo Safari in Tanzania and has been reporting in. Here’s his first post, sent just as he was departing:
At airport ready to begin my journey to Africa. Cameras packed. Lenses packed. Video and P&S packed. Oh yeah clothes too! Like all journeys to Africa before I am excited as I once again live my Hemingwayesqe fantasy. I can’t wait to be out in the bush with all the comforts of home – nice beds, flush toilets, GREAT food.
We’ll be watching watching and photographing prides of lions in the dry grass, graceful giraffes, elegant elephants, stunning zebras, wonderful wildebeests, and all the other myriad of creatures out there.
Africa never ceases to amaze and awe me. I love sharing it with people and watching the astonishment and excitement on their faces I look forward to giving you a glimpse as I report from our Infinite Kayak Adventures safari.
His First Day:
Staying tonight at Rivertrees Lodge a former home of proprieter who was the wife of a Von Trapp. Yes those Von Trapps. She is a great host.
Beautiful 10 acres and great rooms. Late meal of potato leek soup tenderloins of beef cauliflower and beans. For desert chocolate moose. All with delicious bottle of red South African wine. And it is only going to get better. Tomorrow first day of game drive. Can’t wait!
