... resort tents. I want this for camping from now on (images attached). Our first game hunt found a pride of lions within a foot of our vehicle. The female lion was teaching her cubs to hunt. They caught a wild dog within minutes of our start. The grevy zebras are an endangered species. They are somewhat solitary and in this park number 3000.
