Follow MY BLOG as I head into Africa.
First we come face to face with mountain gorillas - no bars, no glass between us.
These are the ancestors of the exact same gorilla families in Rwanda which Dian Fossey herself habituated. If you don't know Dian by name, you likely know the biopic movie "Gorillas in the Mist," which starred Sigourney Weaver.
From there, since we're in the neighborhood, we head to Kenya to view wildlife, from lion to cape buffalo, from giraffe to polar bears.
Well, not polar bears - just testing....
But we should certainly see elephants (as well as the dung beetle who clean up after them), snake eating secretary birds, various vulture species, cheetah and if we are lucky leopard. Much to report. When I return, I will offer a blog with photos. . .
Meanwhile, follow the trip with blogs - which I post here, called Into Africa.
