From my early years, I often envisioned myself exploring Africa , on the vast plains of the Serengeti, where I dreamt of witnessing the breathtaking migration of wildebeests and zebras. These childhood dreams were filled with the excitement of embarking on safaris, encountering Africa’s renowned “Big Five” in their natural habitat, and feeling the majestic presence of elephants, lions, leopards, rhinoceroses, and buffalo. These magnificent creatures became familiar through countless wildlife documentaries, igniting my unwavering fascination.
