We head out to a group out of ruhija. Climbing up and sloping down the hills for two hours were worth it once we got close to this magnificent animal. We spent an hour starring, photoing and enjoying spending the same space with these animals....More

A once in a lifetime experience, they were just feet away from us and not bothered by us being there. Never got this close to wild lions anywhere else in the world.

Once, you get a briefing. You are split up into different groups. Short distance for the physically impaired, medium distance for the more able and on and on. I joined the middle group. The beginning of hike was okay- rather steep climbs. They had trackers...More
