Tented Truth


When you go on safari the second question people ask (after “what animals did you see?”) is “where did you stay?” When you reply that your trip was a tented safari you watch their eyes get wide and prepare for the third question, “like, on the ground?”

I have to say it’s at this point my well-honed skills as a storyteller from years of fishing takes over, and let’s just say some of what I recall is embellished a bit.  The chance to make my friends think we carried our packs across the wild savanna and slept with only a think piece of canvas between us and the wild man-eaters of Africa is one that can’t be resisted, and it’s actually (partially) true.

For the benefit of our readers who want a more realistic account of our accommodations I will now switch off my BS and give you the truth.
