On safari, the key players are the people who devote themselves to making sure that everything goes smoothly and is enormous fun!
As hitherto, in the UK I was guided and organised by Francis Naumann and the team at Aardvark Safaris - they really know their business and they really know me too!     (www.ardvarksafaris.com)
In the camps, the key players were the camp Manager and his/her staff - who were invariably always smiling - and for whom nothing was ever too much trouble!

    Setari                 Skhebo, Mimi   
    Splash                Bino
    Lebala                O D & O C
Even more key, for me, are the guides/spotters, whose genuine friendship, piercing eyesight and identification of everything that moved, ensured that my time in the bush was pure magic and enjoyment!
In fact they also each provided an irreplaceable service: writing down in my little black book the ID of most of the birds that I photographed!
