So you want to see a lion, do you?
Of all the big cats, the lion is the easiest to encounter on safari.
While leopards remain elusive and cheetahs live at low density, lions
roar often in the night, males march across the plains, lords of all
they survey, and prides routinely pass the daylight hours if not in full
view then in easily accessible pools of shade. Lions are cats of few
mysteries, one of scant species in the wild that can afford to be
visible and at rest. And yet, lions are in trouble.
Spoilt for choice
Luxurious lodges, romantic camps, remote campsites, quirky treehouses…
there are masses of wonderful-sounding places to stay on safari. So how
on earth do you choose? If you want to be certain of finding
accommodation that suits your interests, fits your budget and makes a
positive contribution to conservation and community development, you’ll
need to do some careful research – or consult a travel specialist you
really trust. Emma Gregg is here to help you on your way.
