On Safari in Tanzania means nights spent listening to lions and leopards growling as you go to bed, watching the annual 700-mile pilgrimage of 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra through the southern part of the country, and perhaps the rare occasion when you find yourself stuck in your vehicle during a thunderstorm whiteout with the fear that you’re going to be washed away and left as lunch for marauding jackals. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
“Up to this point [before near death by way of rain], our eight-day safari through Tanzania had been exciting for all the right reasons: elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard, all up close and personal, surrounded by great swathes of bush inhabited by herds of zebra, wildebeest and giraffe.”
