    The trip was only for fun. We went to South Africa and did some shark diving, and did find some spiders, snakes and scorpions. We went to Botswana for finding fishes in the Okavango and reptiles in Kalahari. And last Namibia for some reptiles. We did not bring any fish, or anything els with us home, that was not the point of the expedition.

    I went with my good friend Tom Hallvorsen; some in the UK may know him.

    Not many of you understand Norwegian but, her you can find and article about the trip in Norwegian.
