Louise's Africa Tour
Square 1 Travel PLUS
I first saw the movie Born Free when I was little. Since then I always wanted to go to Africa to see all the animals. My dream came true September 2014…not only did it come true, but it was exceeded over and over. Each day brought a different view with amazing animals as far as the eye could see. As we journeyed through these two diverse countries I knew in my heart that I would return again. Why not join me....Sep 13-Sep 30/16
