Wanderings of The Voyager: Africa
South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Victoria Falls in Zambia, and Kenya
by Matthew A. Nelson
This book contains a collection of photos taken in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, and Kenya. Most of the photos are of African animals, but there are some photos taken at Victoria Falls and also of a 1940 Tiger Moth that the author flew.
Over the years, I have been fortunate to have traveled in-and-around all seven continents. Most of my career has been spent as a communications technician and engineer working on the space shuttle and the space station programs. I grew up (or at least became as tall as I am now) in Wyoming, and have lived in Texas for most of the past 30 years. In 1996 I Wintered-over in McMurdo, Antarctica. I am also a private pilot and own my own plane, a 1947 Stinson 108-1. In August, 2008, I flew with Roger "Mzungu" Moore around parts of Africa in a Cessna 182. I was the pilot and he became a pretty good navigator. He made the photo of me. I am also a member of The Explorers Club. My wife Karoline and I have two daughters, Michelle and Cheri. Adding to our family are son-in-laws Keith & John, and two special & cute granddaughters, Camyrn and Cadie. I thank God for His many blessings and giving me the world and space as a gift. Space - I have 100% faith in God that I will go there in my lifetime.
