National Geographic journalist Emma Gregg recently wrote an article on fly camping with us in the Northern Serengeti, see what she has to say below:
“Get down!” hisses senior tracker Pius, ducking behind a large tuft of grass. The wildlife path we’ve been following winds downhill through a tumble of granite koppies and, with my view partially obscured, I can’t yet see what he has seen. Trusting him implicitly, I simply do as he says. Ranger Ezekiel shakes a handkerchief stuffed with ash to test the breeze. We’re crouching so close we can feel each other’s breath.
There’s a rapid exchange of whispers. One word stands out: simba. My Swahili is rudimentary, but every Disney fan knows that one. Lion.
