Liz,
I too have seen these safari ndogos ( bad Swahili! ) such as leave
London on Thursday, visit Zanzibar or go on safari and return the
following Monday. A short trip like that would kill me, I need at least
two weeks! I have met many businessmen on flights to Nairobi who have
been going out to attend meetings and then back home a few days later, I
suppose we are all different. Good on those who can do the short
safaris.
Pat.
