My Story

“When we landed in Mala Mala, a private game reserve bordering South Africa’s vast Kruger National Park, I smiled more broadly than I can ever remember. I was home in Africa, in the bush, after a 20-year absence, together with my two cubs, Isabella and Eric. A few minutes later we were in our camp and I could hear the sound so familiar from decades past; elephants ripping foliage from a tree right there on the camp’s edge. I looked at Isabella and Eric and they, too, were beaming. It was their first time in Africa and that night I was gently admonished for not taking them there sooner. The days that followed were full of adventure and fun and more smiles than you can possibly imagine.”
