The great migration has started – wildebeests on a fast track to somewhere (during our Midlife Madness Safari)


Safari 5 – zebra vs. crocodile 1

Who knows why they do this, when the river’s full of crocodiles? This one, fortunately, got away … (filmed on our Midlife Madness Safari)


Safari 6 – zebra vs. crocodile 2

But this little guy??? Spot the first croc having a go just 30 seconds in (we didn’t see it until we watched the video later) – and the second, bigger croc following the unlucky youngster into the inlet at the end. Amazingly, the baby zebra made it – we saw him scramble up the bank a minute later … (filmed on our Midlife Madness Safari)

About John Cooney

John Cooney and his wife Robyn have enjoyed more than their fair share of travel. They hesitate to call themselves ‘experts’ – but they’ve grabbed every chance that’s come their way to explore new countries, cultures and customs. They’ve had the privilege (both on their own and as the leaders of numerous successful group-tours) to sample many stunning destinations: Europe, the UK, Singapore, Vanuatu, the USA, Israel, Egypt, Africa, Dubai, China, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. And their recent (and most pleasant) memories are of the places ancient-and-modern that border the Mediterranean. John and Robyn are at-home in airports, hotels, cruise ships, and the like … and they know how to make the most of a unique travel opportunity. Travel, they reckon, is an all-five-senses experience – a chance to see, feel, smell, hear and taste the world. And they’ve done it often enough to know for sure: sightseeing with a group of laid-back Kiwis is DOUBLE the fun – lots of laughs, great company, and memories that last forever!
