Official company poet and historian, mixed in with creating dream safaris, my role is certainly varied. My travels have taken me to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia as well as other corners of the globe, but my favourite place to be is any near water; rivers, lakes or oceans and in 2018 I shared the same space in Mana Pools as painted dog packs of BBC's Dynasties fame. In fact the entire region of the 'Mighty Zambezi' is a must for any safari in Zimbabwe and in 2019 the area will see many exciting new developments.
Places to watch out for in 2019 are Akagera in Rwanda & the new Shipwreck Lodge in Namibia, watch out for new images on our site.
On Saturday 5th January 2019 I celebrated my 10 years in travel anniversary, can't wait to see what the next 10 have install for me!
Notes on a Safari by Michael Davies
What’s that ABC thing
Where should I start
It’s the anticipation in the sunrise
The sunset that melts your heart
It’s Kate and Hope and Calvert too
It’s too many people to mention here but this one’s for you
And it’s in the guest stories, John with his wife
The Swiss couple and the time Nadia saved their life
It’s Calvert on a game drive who knows just where to go
It’s Cloud when he tells you to row, row, ROW!
It’s the elephants at Kanga
All those Lions at Somalisa
And I can’t not mention those amazing pizzas!
It’s the gin and tonics the Zambezi beers
It’s the spontaneous moment we all say cheers
It’s a helicopter flight over the falls
And Bhubesi in Hwange and his massive……paws
It’s the elephants that play fight, the weavers in flight
Those amazing leopards at the end of the night
It’s on the Zambezi by boat or canoe
It’s a guides smile when he makes your dreams come true
Nothing in this world is anywhere near as effective
Than Africa and these things to put life into perspective
It’s the warmth of the greeting, the final goodbye
It’s the most amazing trip that’s passed in the blink of an eye
So again thank you, from the bottom of my heart
When I get a new enquiry I know where I’ll start!
