I've recently returned from Debre Birhan, Ethiopia – a small town about three hours outside of Addis Ababa – where I was leading a team of 12 volunteers as we built houses with the local community. It was my second trip to Ethiopia and my fifth trip as a volunteer to Africa with Habitat for Humanity.
Along the beautiful Indian Ocean in Eastern Africa, lies Tanzania. With some of the most incredible beaches in the world, a wealth of natural wonders and a diverse array of wildlife, many flock to holiday here year-round.
It was a few years ago when my travelling companion, Trevor, and I went to Africa. We wanted to experience it all over there - the people, Victoria Falls, the food, but most of all, we wanted to do a genuine African animal safari!
