Warning, if any safari camps wish to employ me as a guide, I expect a salary far, far, more commensurate than my actual experience!

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

Yes that's one of my absolute 2 favourites from his excellent Duba portfolio- the other one is the hamerkop landing with its chick.
