African Wildlife Up Close & Personal

Here's a presentation I gave on board the Viking Sun for the last leg of the 2019 Viking World Cruise while off the west coast of Africa.  A very big thank you to all the wonderful people we met on board the Viking Sun!!  You were an amazing audience and it was a great privilege to share the voyage with you.

At the beginning of the video I refer to Point Zero - located at 0 lat 0 long.  I was very impressed that the Captain made a point of crossing the Equator at Point Zero, even though it added several km to the distance sailed. I also found it rather amazing that you will find a weather buoy anchored to the sea floor via a 5 kilometer long rope!  I will provide photos and some more info on this intriguing location in an upcoming post.

Thanks for visiting and happy travels!

Cheerio, George
