Richard Mullin, a musician from Indiana once said, “The only man I envy is the one that has not yet been to Africa-for he has so much to look forward too”. Africa delights, inspires and awes with its majesty and a safari, as we have told you so many times before, is a profound experience. Today, we want to take you on a virtual safari with some of the best snaps that have come from other people’s encounters:
