My cousin Biddy and I stayed three days at the unfenced Buffelshoek Safari Camp in the Manyeleti Game Reserve, South Africa.
Beautifully made comfortable hut made us feel close to nature
We headed out each morning before sunrise for our first safari of the day.
We would have the fire pit lit in the cold late evenings
Lucky to finally find some lions late in the last evening of our stay.
Lionesses and two cubs.

The beautifully clear night sky I photographed on the little deck of our hut, before we were warned of a nearby predator from a monkey screeching in a tree.
