Your Chance to Win a Safari Trip For Two in Kenya

“Going on a safari in Africa is high on the list of things to do for many people. For those of us that have had a chance to take an African safari, it’s most likely one of the highlights of our travels”, according to this article written by Michael of Michael W Travels… — who recommended to me what was the best safari within the timeframe I had when I was in Kenya a couple of years ago. “Kim and I have visited South Africa, Namibia, Kenya and Uganda. We both agree that the best park we’ve visited on safari was the Masai Mara. I still remember our visit and would love to experience it again so I’d love to win this prize.”

I had the time of my life on safari in Kenya — even with the base camp itself and with what was called a box lunch. I even enjoyed meeting the people. The only negative part of the trip was that I never saw a leopard.

I hope that you win the sweepstakes if you decide to enter, which only takes a few seconds to complete and send the form.

If you would like to see some of the animals which I photographed during a safari in which I participated in Kenya back in 2015 — I still have additional articles to post, including one featuring hippopotami — please refer to these photographic essays…

…as well as of the people of the Maasai society.
