... He has been very forthcoming with campfire stories about close encounters with elephant, rhino and lion, but he has never mentioned the stories that didn't end well until now.

Did our first night game drive last night which was quite wonderful, especially when we encountered a big army of giraffes, slowly rising up to become a wall of towering silhouettes - must be at least 30 of them, such a wonderful sight! Today was a full day safari at Umfolozi Park, another great ...
