23: A water buffalo killed by lions. The lions were sleeping heavily, exhausted and full. | Meanwhile, life was grand at Leopard Hills.

24: To Inyati!

27: The mornings were cool and hot water bottles were blissful. | Hills built by millions of termites . . . some animals take refuge in their warmth. | Grass used for thatched roofs. | A Nat'l Geographic team made this cover for Tracker George, in appreciation for their safari with him.

28: When the dung decomposes, all that is left is the hair of the animal eaten. | Crocs fighting over a waterbuck

41: . . . on the back of a Rhino

56: Cape Town . . . | . . . from our deck at the wonderful Mandela Rhodes | The Green Market | Disco breakfast in our hotel Quotes from Mandela in the lobby

57: Up to Table Mountain

64: The South African government builds "townships" for its poor. As soon as homes are built, shacks are built on their outskirts, as family and friends seek to join in. Sometimes, people are relocated in anticipation of the township being built on that spot, with plans to move them back in once the homes are ready. But friends of government officials sometimes squat in them and don't leave, and those relocated are shut out for years, maybe forever. These are pictures of Khayelitsha, the largest and fastest growing township in South Africa, with a present population of 800,000.

129: When we left the Soroi Serengeti Lodge, waiter "Smiley" handed this note to Susan, asking her not to open it until she was gone. Mrs. Robinson, indeed.

130: It was the adventure of a lifetime.
