Camera in hand, Becky traveled across Kazungula's landscapes and shared her experiences with AWF. Here she circles Victoria Falls between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabawe from a helicopter.
This summer, AWF hosted an exclusive member safari to Uganda and Rwanda. There, the intrepid safari goers formed intimate relationships with each country, trekking through dense bamboo thickets to see mountain gorillas and spying chimpanzees in the rainforest. For guest Colleen, the friendships and memories made won’t soon be forgotten.
