PHOENIX -- For many people, a safari is the trip of a lifetime -- a journey worthy of a high spot on the bucket list.

Unfortunately, there are would-be adventurers who believe such a trip simply can't be done on a budget. Mat Dry of TIA Safaris said that's not true at all.

"Traveling to Africa is affordable and a life-changing experience that also helps preserve the wildlife, land and people," he says. "Most people think Africa is out of reach and it really is a very realistic trip for those looking to travel. A trip to Africa is educational, cultural, picturesque and of course fun."

Dry developed a passion for Africa, one he wants to share. That's why he created TIA (This Is Africa) Safaris.
