Very special experience today. At our next game reserve, Lalibela, we encountered the elusive cheetah … the fastest living thing on earth. This was such a treat to see this majestic animal at close quarters. To add to the excitement we witnessed a pride of lions trying to hunt an antelope for dinner. Unfortunately our vehicle became bogged just around dusk and I think we became the new prey. Luckily a nearby vehicle towed us out so all ended well.
We have resident hippos in the pond near our accommodation and were told not to wander too far from our rooms as lions and elephants are frequent visitors. We were given an air horn to summon rangers for assistance if we are about to be eaten.
Africa has been amazing so far with still more to look forward to.
