“I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can go anywhere on earth. Then I ask myself the same question.” ~ Harun Yahya
I love this thought, the pondering of why, when we are so readily able to move, to travel, we stay in the same place.
Of course, it’s an easy question to answer; like many other animals, humans like to have a home territory, a place where they feel at home, know the terrain and where their family and/ or friends also live. We like to create a nest, a comfortable home where we feel safe and happy.
But humans also have a migratory instinct; certainly our ancestors migrated out of the African cradle of humanity to populate the rest of the world; and there are still migratory peoples today.
Does our urge to travel, for those of us who feel it, stem from those same migratory instincts, I wonder?
This is another image taken on one of our African safaris, one of our much-loved types of holiday. There’s something very special indeed about seeing the beauty of the wilderness and observing wildlife in their natural habitat.
