Taken at Selati Game Reserve, South Africa
Whilst overlanding we were warned by our guide (the infamous Victor-potamus) “don’t trust the bushes” in particular reference to going to the toilet in the reserves we were visiting. I had taken this to heart after a number of sightings but many months later, in Selati, it would also come to mind.
We had been taking the pride of lions and had circled the block but simply couldn’t see them when a little head curiously popped out of the grass. We had passed them once already! Even though the green grass contrasted with their sandy fur, the lions still reamined hidden from all of our eyes… not just one but 9 of them!
…Don’t trust the bushes.
