Micha√ęl Theys, comments, "I'm looking forward to sharing my travel insights in the "twittersphere" as I brought back some amazing overland memories including, my first giraffe kiss! We covered a great deal of Africa in a short time span, the game parks we visited leaving us with more than a few Big Five moments. Our group caught sight of no less than three prides of lions in the Mara, but the pi√®ce de r√©sistance would have to be spotting two magnificent black backs in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Park."
