Len, is it true that you are not allowed to get out of the safari vehicle to answer the call of nature?

Why didn't you get closer to the leopard while he thought you were trying to steal his groceries? :)

Great story and super pictures. Again, it was a super read.

Looks like a great article and pics to be the centerpiece of your new LRH Home Page.

Great photos Len; any chance of a link to some hi res copies please.
BTW that link a couple of replies above did not work for me, just an ad.

Len,

Your photos are fantastic. Your story telling comes alive like a tale from Peter Hathaway Capstick. I will probably never get to Africa so keep the photos and stories coming.

Regards,

Wayne

Thanks, actually there is one more story from that trip that I haven't written. I'll do that this winter.

Len,
Great read, who did you book the safari with? I am currently living in Nairobi and travel to the Mara and surrounding parks as much as possible to "hunt" with my camera.
