Namibia Part 1: Back at CCF

After some long flights and ample travel excitement, I landed in Namibia and headed for the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF). I am not only on the board of trustees for this incredible organisation but I feel like it is a home away from home in Africa. Every time I arrive I receive a warm welcome […]


Thank You Boston Globe Travel Show

Last weekend was the much-anticipated Boston Globe Travel Show. I have been attending the show for the last 4 years. It is always an honor as always for Infinite Safari Adventures to represent Africa and inspire attendees with the possibilities of travel on safari.

4th Annual “Meetah Cheetah” – A Resounding Success

If you don’t know by now (wait I have not told you 🙂 ) I am on the Board of Trustees of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (www.cheetah.org). Every year I have done an event entitled “Meetah Cheetah” to coincide with CCF founder Dr. Laurie Marker’s spring tour through the United States. I am proud to […]


Some people think the photo above is cute. Others may think “oh I would like to have a cheetah as a pet.” In fact if you Google “cheetahs as pets” you will see advertisements for cheetahs for sale. And people will post this photo on Facebook or Tweet it or Instagram it and have lots […]
