“An amazing real life perspective on African safari that has been delightfully shared.
Funny and witty. Footsteps well worth following.” –Philip Coetzee, South Africa, Advanced Nature Guide, author of Birds for Beginners.
In an entertaining and informative slide presentation “African Safari 101” Alex Shaland talks about his first-hand experience of meeting the wild animals of Africa face to face. Having gone on safaris in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Nepal, and Madagascar, Shaland definitely has lots of practical information and fascinating stories to share.
Starting with various options of locations and accommodations and tips for preparing for a safari trip, the lecture answers such frequently-asked questions as “How does it feel to be only a few feet away from a pride of lions devouring their kill, a herd of suspicious elephants, an intimidating Cape buffalo, or an unpredictable rhinoceros?”
