You may or may not have noticed, but LufthansaFlyer.com was fairly dormant for most of the last 10 days. It wasn’t for a lack of content or news regarding LH……
What created this vacuum in the blogosphere was the fact that my wife and I spent an unbelievable week on Safari in Africa. With polygraph attach, I can say that it was by far THE……BEST……VACATION…..that I’ve ever been on. What we saw, who we met and what we observed was unlike anything else that either one of us has ever experienced.
I do know that my cameras came back with 10 full memory cards and approximately 6500 photos and 4 hours of video. The prospects of sorting through all of it feels akin to putting a firehose in my mouth and turning the valve.
I’m having trouble where to start my series of trip reports due to the aforementioned statements.
The week on Safari in Africa was framed with 3 long haul flights by Lufthansa and 1 by United. I changed our outbound flight from the USA to UA since LH pilots had announced a long haul strike for the day were flying to FRA. I did not want to jeopardize our trip so was proactive but in hindsight we would have been fine on the LH flights since most long haul flights operated as usual.
As I sort through content and photos, I’ll use this post as an introduction and future installments will go in more details on our experiences. I’ll go into much greater details on the fantastic lodge, our hosts and the wonderful creatures that we saw from sun up to sun down (and later) each day!
So for now, enjoy a small appetizer of what my cameras captured……..
