Zulu Nyala

When I was little my mom and I would watch a show on Animal Planet called Meerkat Manor every week. We loved the show and all of the different meerkats, it was our reality TV. Since then my mom and I had vowed that one day we would travel to Africa and go on a photo safari together. It is the top item on our bucket lists and we have been able to cross it off! We were able to stay the Zulu Nyala Wildlife Preserve and it was gorgeous. I will be posting day by day our different encounters with the incredible animals and nature we encounter.
