    Favorite thing: Sitting on the roof of the vehicles during the game drives was absolutely brilliant, no matter how uncomfortable sometimes. The drivers were very considerate and tried to avoid the potholes and the low branches, but every once in a while you reluctantly would have to climb down when an especially rocky patch or thick foliage was ahead. The only thing that was guaranteed to clear the roof instantly was the shout "Spiderweb ahead". It is a mystery to me how they build these things right across the road between trees that are sometimes 10m apart, and getting them in your face was not experience you would like to repeat.

    Lions, finally!

    Favorite thing: The best thing of course was when at the beginning of our second week the big day finally arrived and we saw our first (and last) lions. We had just arrived back at camp from our evening drive when the guys from the other vehicle radioed us to say that they spotted two male lions. Immediately everybody piled back into the car and hung on for dear life while Chui, our driver, was booting it to the location of the sighting, hurtling through all the potholes he had so carefully avoided all these days. Inexplicably the lions (one completely maneless, and one with a little wanna-be mane) were not scared away by our rather abrupt appearance on the scene, and lay down in the high grass. We watched, filmed and photographed them for about two hours as they moved along the road ahead of us, and recorded their roars. Those two hours were the highlight of the trip, and I felt very privileged to be able to watch these fascinating cats out in the wild.

    Fondest memory: Meeting interesting people from different walks of life that I would never have met in my everyday life, and making some great new friends.
