On Saturday, July 7, 2007, I traveled deep into nature to learn more about bird species, their habitats, and living patterns. Around mid—day, the sun became so intense that I sought respite in a cool and damp cave.
While resting, I noticed a small bird that appeared to be dancing. It was hopping around the cave, from one side to the other, and I found myself transfixed in watching its graceful movements. I was mesmerized by the way the bird moved, her simple coloring, and the easy way she glided across the damp rock.
This bird was a member of the Shrike species. At this moment, I made it my mission to create a safari company that could not only do a lot better than what this company I was working for but also would allow other persons to get inspired by the small acts of nature, just as I had been on this day. It was in a cool, breezy cave, watching the beauty and simplicity of nature, that the idea for Shrike Safaris was born.
