    ... tucking into a hare they had just killed. A call then came in for a pack of sleeping lions which we found easily and marvelled at how peaceful they all looked - amazing!

    From the very first night, they made me feel at home. On the drive from UB to my home, we stopped at the store, they asked what my favorite breakfast food was, and they bought me two boxes of Frosted Flakes. When they realized that I liked Coca-Cola, they made sure there was always a 2 liter bottle in the refrigerator.

Coenie educated us on his warning signs - the shaking of his head, the forceful stare - but also reassured us that he was still pondering whether or not we were a threat by rubbing his tusk with his trunk.
