I've always wanted to do a safari in Sri Lanka and when Vincent and I finally decided to make a trip there together, it was on the top of our list of things to do. Despite being such a small country, Sri Lanka actually has 26 national parks (in addition to a wide range of nature reserves and sanctuaries) and is actually considered to be one of the best places in Asia for seeing wildlife.
I've always fancied myself as a small brown David Attenborough. But narrating the movements of next door's ginger cat didn't quite give me the excitement that I was looking for. I wanted to see real wild animals up close.
So, when we decided to move to Zambia, going on a safari was one of the first things we wanted to do. The question was - where should we do it? There were so many options: Kruger in South Africa, Luwanga in Zambia, the Serengeti in Tanzania... but in the end we decided that we would go and visit Chobe National Park.
