More Extraordinary Experiences in Africa


What an incredible experience it was as we sat beside a large Leatherback turtle in absolute awe as she layed her eggs. There must have been a 100 soft shelled white eggs in the shape of a ping pong ball.

I knew that I had just witnessed one of Life’s miracles. (Gelle)
