Take an African safari with us!
Into the Okavango: The Africa Poems and Photographs (ISBN 0-9742183-0-8) is a 216-page, 92-poem, 500-photograph, 12 x 13 inch adventure, taking its readers on twenty-three days of safaris through Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa, detailing first encounters with elephants, cheetahs, lions, leopards, hippopotamuses, crocodiles, and more.
