Africa is home to the world’s largest land mammal the elephant. Join Scott Wilson as he shares his encounters with these most noble social animals, along with leopards and the near extinct black rhino, and his trailing of the great wildebeest migration.
Wilson shares daily treks through South Africa’s Zulu Nyala Game Reserve near St. Lucia; visits Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe; travels to Zambezi and Chobe national parks; and meets up with his family and guide on the flanks of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The next ten days are spent trekking the Tarangire and Serengeti national parks and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, before flying to the historic Muslim island nation of Zanzibar and ending in Dar Es Salaam, and meeting up with an old family friend.
Wilson’s ruminations on poacher raids of wildlife, Mandela’s multi-racial society in South Africa, and the tense house-of-cards in Mugabe’s Zimbabwe fill out his presentation.
