“Wonderful Tour”
- QLD, Australia Jun 2019

We had a wonderful time on this tour with a great group of Australians. We stayed in amazing hotels and lodges and ate plenty of delicious food. In total we saw over 40 different mammals and many birds. It got to the stage where we didn't think we could possibly take another photo of an elephant etc but the next day we would be taking yet another photo. It was in the first game park we saw the big five and we saw them again in some other parks. It was very exciting to see so many animals right...read more
