Africa gives you the knowledge that man is a small creature, among other creatures, in a large landscape.
I will be honest, I am at a complete loss for words at the beauty and majesty of the animals, landscape, skies and nature which I have seen over the last few days on my recent trip to the Ngorogoro Crater, the Serengeti and the Great Rift Valley in Tanzania. Everything I write seems to sound so cliched and naff that I have now given up trying.
So I shall simply include my photographs and leave the words to Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing, taken from her second volume of Collected Africa Stories ‘The Sun Between Their Feet’:
“Africa gives you the knowledge that man is a small creature, among other creatures, in a large landscape.”
Move over Julian, Dick, Ann, George and Timmy the Dog, this Famous Five went on Safari and met the big five – the African lion, African elephant, cape buffalo, African leopard and the black rhinoceros.
