    What an amazing couple of people you are! I only wish I could know you. Through your pictures and comments I see my dreams coming true. I do love wildlife photography, and this is what I have been doing for the past 15 years, mostly in North America. But after one trip to RSA and Namibia, I dream of these places for our future trips when my wife and I retire. Like you, we want to travel a few months at a time, but not on such a scale.

    For now, I just want to thank you for sharing and inspiring. I also must admit that your images are of wonderful quality and they proved to be a great remedy for my desire for visiting unfriendly and greedy Kenya.

    Your 2014 trip is your best one, at least in my eyes. The only worry I have for us is your timing. October and November are very hot in Kgalagadi and Etosha. How did you manage?

    Congratulations on your lifestyle! I wish you many, many trip in the future.

    Dear Howard and Marianne,

    What a lovely way to teach biology! I look forward to sharing your art/science/travelogue with my homeschooled students. Love the tips, esp. courtesy to road block guards & avoiding Cape Cobra hitchhikers. Thank you for sharing. PS: nice sketch of the lock-and-key enzyme model (that's how I found your blog)

    Superb photos - unfortunately my wife has an autoimmune disease so we have to stay away from malaria areas - I am very envious
