Dreaming of An African Safari

it is a dream, i don't know if i can go as far as to say a goal, but i would love to go on an african safari. maybe i was an animal in a prior life lol!! but my love of animals and the peace i feel around them makes me deeply want that experience. however my fear of planes will never take me there i guess...

I totally get it! I also started with short flights, to Florida with my kids as they refused to drive there after the third time :). Your 2 hr flight is a start. My flight to England was a test for sure. But since I survived that one, barely, I decided I had better just put up with the sweats and walks on the aisle of the plane, etc. if I want to see the world. You're on the right track. Just don't give up now. Next trip, do a 4 hr flight somewhere. Let me know when you do. Then we can work on getting you to Africa.

A fear of planes kept me away from most of the world for many years. But a sick niece in England (I live in Canada) was my first step to conquering that fear. Today, 25 years later, I am still scared of flying, but I fly anyways. Had I not, I would not have seen the wonderful animals in Africa. I don't know how I got to this page, but we sell african safaris so my question to you is, did you ever fly to fulfil that dream of yours. Let me know. I'm curious.

I live in Canada too by the way....but no...5 years later, i have still not fulfilled that desire...i'm not sure how long the flight would be...i just don't think i could manage it...but i have been on a plane, i've been to Vegas twice lol...a nice 2 hour flight...but very happy to get off the plane lol

ROFL @ marji ... PIP, my friend, i too have always wanted to go on safari. we don't have to get on a plane if ya don't wanna. we could get on a ship to that continent ya know? then take a ride to the safari lands ... just a thought. african or australian either one and i can mark "safari" off my list. ;-)
