    This would be a great place to go- a safari. I’m not sure if I would feel a little scared being around lions and safari animals.. I guess its the fear of the unknown but im sure it would be nice.

    I’d love to do a safari but I think it’s one for when the kids get older and have left home 😉

    I’ve been on a mini type of safari when I was younger but would love to do it properly. These all look amazing!x

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the unceiappredrated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
