I always thought I'd like to go on an African hunting safari… Friends suggested I read some books by famed professional white hunter, Peter Capstick… Death in the Long Grass, Death on the Dark Continent, The Big 5 African Killers…
Well needles to say, after reading stuff like that, I was afraid to go out into my own back yard… Africa? Forget it!

My wife's friends are giving glowing reports of the Africa Tours where one sees and photographs the exotic wild animals in National Parks. So she books us on a trip. Animals in National Parks and Wildlife Reserves are use to people… "tame" if you will… and there is nothing to worry about…

I'm just starting to warm to the idea of this "African Photo Safari" when my wife says she has arranged for out shots. SHOTS?

Hepatitis A
Meningitis
Yellow Fever
Polio
Typhoid
Malaria Pills
and the Routine Vaccinations have to be updated.

At least the Doctor said I don't have to take the Hepatitis B (3 shots over a 2 month period) unless I'll be working with people where I'd be in contact with blood and bodily fluids. Well, not if I can help it. :S

People visit Tanzania and Kenya every day with no problems… right?
My problem is getting ready for the trip.
:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

:ohmy:
P.S.
To all my "friends"… you can stop sending me all those You Tube Videos taken by tourists in Africa of:
Elephants chasing and sitting on cars.
Rinos tipping over jeeps.
Baboons terrorizing people in cars.
Etc, etc, etc.

NOT FUNNY, McGee!
:angry:
