When I was a child until I was old enough, I kept asking Santa every Christmas to have a lion or a zebra or a tiger !!! To be able to see all my favorite animals in their wild life would be the best day of my life :)

  30. Honestly, being two Leo’s who met after a ma yo a broken road, I honestly cannot pick a better man to be my safari soulmate to accompany me and enjoy the gift of nature on a safari. With five kids and zero help in our single hood, it would be a dream come true to spend a respite enjoying god’s perfect balance and experiencing the beauty of each other and nature’s gift combined.

  31. A dream vacation, my soulmate -my wife- of close to 27 years and I have always planned for, and a great opportunity to go to a continent we have always wished -and wanted- to visit, but have not gone… yet, since we have dedicated, through several different prestigious 100 % non-profit NGOs- close to 24 years to helping others in need!~ Best wishes from Honduras, cradle of the portentous Maya civilization and culture.
