A is for Aardvark by Thomas Retterath

It is for sure the sighting of a lifetime. I´ll bet, I´ll never get to see such an animal in the wild again. Never ever! Our guide saw such an animal only once and that was in 1986! Years ago we spent an afternoon game drive with a pro photographer (Ariadne Van Zandberge). We talked about special sightings and she said, that if anybody said he had seen an Aardvark, she would definitely end the conversation and go. It´s high on the list of every serious Safari-goer. And we belong to the lucky few! I am happy! BTW: did I ever tell, that I love Africa?
