We got back to the lodge late from the safari, about 9 am, after about 3 ½ hours or more in the bush, a truly incredible and very memorable experience.
At this point I would be remiss if I didn't thank the Virgin Unite and say what incredible hosts the Team Branson are. A special note of thanks to Nicole, Bridget, Jenny, Tracey ...
