E' stato un viaggio impegativo ma ne è valsa la pena
Quando avvisti un elefante immerso nel suo habitat naturale sei ricompensata di tutte le fatiche, della sveglia all'alba e dell'afa
Un viaggio che consiglio a tutti almeno una volta nella vita
Tanta natura, tante attività all'aria aperta. Vedere gli animali della savana è un'emozione unica.
