The sun sets over the African Savanna. The buzz of crickets is briefly dulled by the roar of distant lions. We stroll along the trails, ever watching for a glimpse of the diverse wildlife. The stars appear and light our way as we brave the Serengeti night and return to camp. The flames of the campfire dance as stories of the day's adventure are told
