Sunsets on Safari

One of my favourite things about being in the African bush is the beauty that comes every evening in the form of sunset. Sometimes, you get really lucky and it will be truly spectacular, with the light bouncing off the clouds in just the right way. At this time of day, lots of things are happening in the animal kingdom, vultures and other birds of prey are finding safe places to roost for the night, often in dead trees. Lions start moving round, warthogs dash for their burrows, and hippos start leaving the water. It always feels like a real privilege to be out on game drive at this time of day, and of course the drive must stop for “sundowners”, a time to enjoy the sunset with a nice cold drink and some snacks!
