I’ve been extremely lucky to see wild animals up close (sometimes too close, but those stories for another day). I’m not a huge fan of most zoos, and prefer to see animals in their natural habitats. My dream, ever since I was a little girl, has been to see an African elephant in the wild; that’s why, on the eve of my 30th birthday, I’m flying to South Africa so that I can start a tour through Botswana where, hopefully, I’ll be surrounded by animals.
Have you ever been on a safari? What are some of your most memorable moments with wild animals?
