________
#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak Let’s start with a tough question! What’s your favorite National Park in Africa & why? 🙂
___________________________________________________________________
*Michael’s tweet:*

#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes Sure, tough question indeed… I guess I’d have to go with the Serengeti.
________
#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes It’s got everything: abundant wildlife & incredible scenery! 🙂 http://su.pr/4VsVB5
____________________________________________________________________
*Melvin’s tweet:*

#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak Yes, the Serengeti is great & is very famous for the ‘Great Migration’ of wildebeest & zebras.
________
#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak Have you been there to see it?
___________________________________________________________________
*Michael’s tweet:*

#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes Yes I have on a couple of occasions, though it’s been a while. Did you check the park’s latest update?
___________________________________________________________________
*Melvin’s tweet:*

#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak No, what are the latest Serengeti news?
___________________________________________________________________
*Michael’s tweet:*

#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes Well believe it or not but I just read yesterday that Uwe (friend of mine) saw some wild dogs…
_________
#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes they had been out of the park for over 20 years! Pretty cool, huh? 🙂 I’m so jealous…
_________
#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes It’s one of the only African animals I have NEVER seen! Have you?
___________________________________________________________________
*Melvin’s tweet:*

#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak No, but that’s not a big deal, only been once on Safari so far.
_________
#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak We’ve explored Tanzania by self drive 4×4. That was fun & I can recommend it to others. http://su.pr/1x85Gk
_________
#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak The wild dogs sound interesting, but I still don’t get it all… what’s so special exactly?
___________________________________________________________________
*Michael’s tweet:*

#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes What I mean is the animals were believed to have gone extinct there…until now! 🙂
___________________________________________________________________
*Melvin’s tweet:*

#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak Now I get it! lol That is amazing! I hope you’ll see them soon, too.
________
#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak Was there ever a situation on a safari where you felt a bit scared?
___________________________________________________________________
*Michael’s tweet:*

#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes Not necessarily scared per se, but where things got a little shaky yes!
_________
#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes Got mock-charged by elephants on several occasions, had a few close encounters with lions, etc.
___________________________________________________________________
*Melvin’s tweet:*

#Q&A @traveldudes to @Africafreak Mock charged? Tell us more…
___________________________________________________________________
*Michael’s tweet:*

#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes Yep, mock-charged: meaning the animal is feeling threatened…& is feinting an attack…
________
#Q&A @Africafreak to @traveldudes But if you approach too much…then they REALLY charge! 😉 Not to be underestimated…
___________________________________________________________________

#Q&A @Traveldudes to @Africafreak FINAL QUESTION BY @TravelDesigned Is it safe to travel in Africa?
#Q&A @Traveldudes to @Africafreak FINAL QUESTION BY @TravelDesigned It seems like there is so much unrest in many of the nations.
___________________________________________________________________
*Michael’s tweet:*

#Q&A @Africafreak to @Traveldudes @TravelDesigned 1st of all notice that travel operators will not venture in countries considered “unsafe”!
#Q&A @Africafreak to @Traveldudes @TravelDesigned & 2nd Africa is often portrayed as such in the media. While there is some truth in this…
#Q&A @Africafreak to @Traveldudes @TravelDesigned …1 cannot generalize. As a whole u must take ur precautions like in most big cities 🙂
#Q&A @Africafreak to @Traveldudes @TravelDesigned But in my opinion, Africa’s wonders BY FAR outlast all the “wars” & political woes…
