The Best of 2013 – Part 1 – The Carnivores

It’s been another incredibly rewarding year here at Africa Dream Safaris. The stories, pictures and videos submitted from returning guests over the last 12 months have been spectacular and even inspirational. I thought it would be great fun to revisit some of the more exceptional postings from our blog during 2013 and highlight some of the most remarkable photographs.
