Not too many months ago, I spent eight days traveling through Kenya. It was my first visit to the country, and because of experiences like these 10 adventures--from a walking safari in an under-the-radar conservancy in the Mara to breakfast with wildlife in The Samburu National Reserve and an island retreat off the southeast coast--I know it's far from my last.
I didn't know much about desert-adapted lions before my trip to Namibia. I knew they were endangered like every other lion in Africa. But that's just part of their story. It wasn't until Stander's talk that I fully understood the magnificence of these majestic creatures -- the mere 150 that are left.
