Got That Friday Africa Feeling?!!!: Retweets, Wild Tweeps & Top Tips For Madagascar

Since the beginning of December we’ve been going WILD ONLINE with our new campaign and sharing the best of Africa on the net.

Our Guest blogger Sara Le Houllier has also delivered some handy tips on how to make MORE of Madagascar and we’ve been quizzing our blogging partners on the secrets of a sensational safari.

Looking to make more of the wildlife? Check out some simply awesome videos from PlanYourSafari, featuring everything from sardine runs in South Africa (if you’re a dolphin lover get your eyes round this one!) to flaming flocks of flamingos in Kenya, and of course the unforgettable Wildebeest migration.

You can also get all the latest news and views from on flights and currency; and as it’s nearly Christmas, why not give the gift of a virtual safari experience and download AfricaFreak’s FREE Safari 101 Tips E-Book!
