Sitting in our luxury van with air conditioning while witnessing all the people walking, working, begging, sleeping along the road in the pure heat is awful. For the girls and me, this was the first real interaction with poverty. And a seed was born for Song for Africa.

 

We arrived in at our hotel which looked great, even though the price is from a regular/standard hotel in America.

 

We all sat on our terrace, drinking our exotic drink but in silence. There was a huge elephant in the room and it was just a matter of time someone speak her mind.

 

The following day, everyone seemed a bit more back to normal and enjoyed breakfast.

 

Matt was already waiting on the lobby to bring us to our first day of the itinerary: mini-safari.

 

All I can say was, it was amazing. We took a long trip through a lot of nature before the real safari started. Mesmerizing.
