Cindy feeding the Warthogs in Africa
Submitted: Sep 30, '08
Great Travel Moment
My wife loves animals and it was a privilege to see them in the wild in Africa. We checked into the Little Governor's camp in the middle of the Masai Mara, Kenya a few years ago. To Cindy's delight we spied several warthogs (her favorite animal) running around the camp! It turned out that the hot air balloon pilot had rescued two orphaned babies from a lion, brought them to camp, and several years later there was a little herd of about 10 in camp. They were semi-domesticated and Cindy loved feeding them. We did have a scare one night when a lion discovered the small herd and decided to hunt for them on the fringes of the camp. Rule number one: never go outside of your tent at night without an armed guard!
