Have a trip with "Safarnama" Woo huuu, all got Ten on Ten completed. But there were something else too, which in wildest dream also I may have not thought like .. A team of travellers, giving one one sec moments, so energectic, knows how to fill one one sec, not a leaving a single 'Safari' in boredom. With these Safarnami's, you try to be silent and bored,....hell no you can't be. Even if you are a great introvert, your conscious will attract you to join their peacefull crezzies.
