Running Wild in Botswana

By Dave Fox
Botswana (via Singapore)

No, I’m not in Africa right now. But Singapore’s Straits Times newspaper has just published an article I wrote  about the writing safari I co-guided in Botswana a while back:

Whatever I do, Bill whispers, I must hold on tightly and never step down from the Land Rover’s running board. Because if the lioness charges our vehicle while I’m balancing on the outside ledge, our driver will have to floor the gas. The razor-like thorn bushes will not be kind to my legs, but they’ll be kinder than the cat….

For copyright reasons, I can’t publish the full article here, but you can read it on the Straits Times partner website,
