Happy New Year to all our friends around the world. A new year has begun with new exciting opportunities as we celebrate our 20th year in offering wildlife experiences. But before leaving last year behind, we would like to take a quick look back at our highlights of 2020.
It certainly was a very special and challenging year for the whole world.
