On Safari…

In Botswana the earth is parched and cracked from months without rain. Water pools sit dried up and abandoned, forcing animals to travel long distances in search of a life-sustaining drink. Not all of them make it. For those that do, taking that long sip of fresh water may cost them their lives, for in this driest of seasons, while the world waits for the spring rains to come, the water hole has become the easy hunting ground of Africa’s predators — lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, African wild dog and, of course, the ever-present and dangerous crocodile.

The water hole is where I am as well, on a photo safari aptly named “Predators-Prey-Survivors”. For ten days we will be watching and filming the action, based in mobile tented camps in the bush, not far from the stage.

When it’s over, I’ll share the results with you. See you at the beginning of October!

(P.S. The above photo of me was taken at Tiger Canyons in South Africa, with two cheetah who have been hand-reared by John Varty. Do not try this at home!)

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
