As some of you know, I recently traveled to South Africa with Nat Geo Wild. Here are some notes from the experience. For starters, leopard piss smells like buttered popcorn! (In the image above, you can see a leopard named Karula marking her territory, just the tiniest glint of urine shining in the setting sun.) Here's an excerpt:
"During my time with the crew, I saw impala, snakes, mushrooms, zebras and heinous little insects known as "ball-biter ants". I gawked at hornbills and hippos and horn-boring moths. I sat silently in moonlight as elephants gorged themselves on trees so close I could have stood up, yelled“Bangarang!” and jumped onto their wrinkly grey backs."
