AFRICA

When you have acquired a taste for the dust,
and the scent of our first rain,
You're hooked for life on Africa,
and you'll not be right again,
Until you can watch the setting moon
and you can hear the jackals bark,
and know they are around you
waiting in the dark

When you long to see the elephants
or hear the coucal's call,
When the moonrise sets your blood on fire,
then you've been away too long.
It is time to cut the traces loose,
and let your heart go free,
Beyond that far horizon
Where your spirit yearns to be

Africa is waiting -come!
Since you have touched the open sky
and learned to love the rustling grass
and the wild fish eagle's cry.
You'll always hunger for the bush,
for the lion's rasping roar
To camp at last beneath the stars,
and to be at peace once more

~Author Unknown~


and with this in mind, my story of nine days in Kruger begins ......
