When first heard about going on a wilderness hike I was afraid because of the animals out there and from some of the stories I heard. But after getting out there with my guide I felt alot better. It was very educational and enlightening but always remember do everything your tracker and guide says because this animals will attack you.
This was done through my stay at Tanda Tula. After the morning safar drive we had breakfast out in the open in the bush which I enjoyed very much. Then dinner was served outside around a boma under the stars. Very nice great experience. Make sure your safari camp offers this because it is a nice experience.
The Safari Drive is a definite you. I saw all of the big 5 in this park. Lions, elephants, leopards, buffalo, rhino, cheetah, zebra and much more.
Remember when on your open vehicle game drive never stand up, stick limbs on or get out of the vehicle unless instructed by a guide because once you are outside the vehicle the animals will view you differently. That is what will lead to an animal attack.
Also listen to your guides and trackers.
