…since we are on the subject I thought I would leave you with one last safari tip. So when you have those extra greenbacks required to make your way to my side of the world you are fully prepared.
This would be along the lines of what NOT to do while on safari.
It clearly states in the information you receive when entering the park that under no circumstances should you get out of your vehicle. The reason would seem obvious…there are hundreds of carnivorous animals that aren't picky about their meat. You are equipped with numerous phone numbers for qualified people to assist you in a “get out of the vehicle” type situation. So what did we do when we had a flat tire while on safari? By ‘we’ let me clarify…what did the men in our party do when we got a flat tire? They got out of the vehicle and changed it themselves.
This tip would be especially important when 30 minutes prior to the flat tire just a few kilometers away 2 cheetahs took down and zebra and then a pack of lion chased the cheetah away to enjoy their striped dinner. (True story)
Angry, hungry cheetah….lion on the prowl….2 large men on the open savannah….hummm
So I guess my tip would be to stay in your vehicle or bring along a praying wife and mother!
