- I see that the lodges where you stop are not protected against wildlife, not even summarily, aren't there any lions around there? Yes there are, we did not come across any.
- did you cross that region where the lions are making short thrift of people?
- did you hear any roar? This was in the general area, but the specific village where the last 16 people were eaten was still some 150km away.

This rr makes me just apply for a park ranger job in Africa, let me know if you see any opening.
