Lucy's Most Memorable Experience
As someone who is a huge animal lover, there is no better way to observe the lions than on the back of a truck in the heart of the bush.
Whilst in South Africa I had the chance to experience a Sabi Sands Safari. Within minutes of being out in the vehicle, we stumbled upon a vast open area with a singular tree in the centre. On the nearest side of the tree was a rhino, enjoying his evening meal of grass, and as we pulled up we noticed a lion was on the other side of the tree making use of the shade.
All of us (including our ranger, Matt) could not believe our eyes; two creatures who are enemies in a tough world such as this, were in such close proximity but did not seem fazed by one another. After some time they began to move so we made our way down to the small waterhole, watched the lion drink, and after sometime there was a standoff for territory between him and the rhino until the lion gave in.
