Wow!  What breath-taking pictures of the landscapes!  I don't know which one is my favorite; they are all gorgeous.  From my previous few months in Africa (Malawi and Zanzibar/Tanzania), I found that the place really sticks to your heart.  I hope to go back one day.  Thank you for sharing your wonderful pictures!
