  • Lots of experiences, One story sticks in the mind in early Safari Rally days, whilst waiting for the sweeper truck having split the sump on a rock, Nick rested roadside in the shade of an Acacia Bush, keeping his eye on some Maasai folk who stayed on the other side of the road. He then very gratefully discovered they were watching out for a lioness and her cubs taking the shade on the other side of the same bush!!
