African safari experts to follow on Twitter

As you probably know, Twitter is becoming THE big thing on the Internet lately! Since I am an active user (follow me @AfricaFreak), I thought I’d share with you some of the key Twitter profiles from the safari industry. Of course, the following is just a brief list of what there is out there! Make sure you ADD your twitter profile reference if not included below! The aim is to ultimately have a thorough database of the major safari players on twitter. I’m counting on you to make some noise! 🙂

Hope you find the twitter names useful, as it has taken me quite a bit of time to research and compile this! Enjoy ;).
