There is nothing as exciting as an African Safari. The thrill of seeing these animals (so many of which are endangered) in the wild cannot be overstated. How much longer will we be able to see them? African Lions have been losing numbers rapidly…in the last two decades alone 30-50% of them have disappeared. How many are left? A mere 47,000. They are vulnerable to extinction. Only 12,000 or so Cheetahs are left on the continent of Africa which leaves them very vulnerable as well. So many of our iconic African species are threatened with extinction…going on an African safari sooner rather than later is highly recommended. And oh, the cats! They are so beautiful, so exotic, and yet so familiar! Let us enjoy these cats, from South Africa, Tanzania, Chobe, and Zimbabwe…while we still can.
