    Hi, my name is Frank, I'm from the Midlands and enjoy visiting zoo's and wildlife parks. I also regularly go on safari holidays to Tanzania and Kenya.
    I have visited about 30 British zoo's / parks this year so far. This coming week I will be touring the West Country to take in Exmoor, Dartmoor, Paignton, Newquay and Noah's Ark Zoo's.

    The Great Carmo?, is your name taken from Bertram Mills original circus partner?

    Indeed it is. I have an original poster from 1923 of The Great Carmo featuring Togare and his lions.

    Hello Frank. Where abouts in kenya have you been? I too enjoy african safaris. I would recommend Ethiopia and South Africa as well. Not been to Tanzania though but I would think a lot of it is similar to the Masai Mara.
