In the midst of the Covid-19 global pandemic, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and a bit hopeless. When I was forced to postpone my upcoming safaris planned for this May and June to Tanzania and Botswana to next year, I must admit it was a pretty horrid feeling. Part of that feeling was purely selfish - I'm really going to miss Africa this year! But I'm also worried about my friends working in safaris and conservation, and what this means for the people and wildlife of Africa. But before I could even start to feel miserable about all that, emails started rolling in from our guests from all across the world. No one talked about cancelling; everyone was just as keen as I was to make sure we get over to Africa, even if it is a year later. I am so grateful for this - because Africa really needs us right now.
