The alternate path
Have to share this one ... The morning of Jan 7th I left Makalali to catch a bus back to Jo'burg - a detour off the scheduled 2 weeks at base & bush camp. Vlad stayed the full time there. That night, an epic hyena brawl broke out in the middle of bush camp. I had thought of staying back that same night to avoid Jo'burg layover but didn't do it. Talk about choosing your own adventure..
Here is Vlad's story from his own writing. Epic.
