Getaway magazine (South Africa) recently featured a story about spending a day in the African bush on your own at the end of an EcoTraining field-guide course on the edge of South Africa’s Kruger National Park.

Quotable quote: “The grumble of the 4×4 recedes into the distance. I’m all alone in Kruger. No rifle, no map, no knife. Only instinct and (patchy) common sense to guide me. My heart is thumping. Don’t run. Listen. Breathe . . . Before long, I let myself be consumed by the sights, sounds and smells, allowing Kruger to work its enchantment.
