Safari Dining

My favorite kind of wildlife safari is camping, because we’re out in the savannah with nothing but wild creatures.  Feeding a group of 12 clients, and the guides and guards, required an organized production and two excellent chefs.

These are photos of our safari camping in Meru National Park in Kenya. The food was incredible.  Coming “home” to camp after a full day of watching lions, cheetahs, and elephants, and sitting down to a meal of delicious fire-roasted food…ahhh, that is living.

Add to that the night sounds of the moaning hyenas, sloshing hippos, and restless lions, and life could not be better.  It’s not for everyone, but to me, it is paradise.


What about danger you ask?  We had Maasai warriors on night shift–it doesn’t get safer than that!
