If you could do just one NWS safari, which one would it be and why?
Currently if I could join one NWS safari it would have to be the trip to Svalbard. After reading the book Dark Matter by Michelle Paver, I have been fascinated by the landscape discovered in the book and by the freezing cold temperatures. Also seeing the polar bears and whales must be pretty amazing.
