We were dropped into the African wild to survive with only our bare hands, fleet feet, gnashing teeth, a jeep and a ranger. Twenty-four hours amongst the beasts. Of the eight that went in, only nine of us returned. The locale: Schotia Reserve and Addo Elephant National Park.The musical accompaniment is Sing Sing Sing (with a Swing) by Louis Prima.
