Greetings, Melanie, and welcome to Tripatini! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Tripatini, you may want to take a moment to join several of our many other groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Tour Operators/Suppliers, Zambia, Eco/Sustainable Tourism, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and plenty of others covering many other topics and most destinations across the globe.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, Zambia, and your lodge (please help both yourself and our other members by sharing its name and URL with us in your profile).
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and guests. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!).
Thanks much for joining us, Melanie; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
