A Day in the African Bush

#singitastories - Saitoti Ole Kuwai from Singita on Vimeo.

Your day starts in the dark. At 4 o'clock in the morning, you can still hear hyenas calling. The bush is awake.

Saitoti Ole Kuwai is a field guide at the African luxury lodge, Singita. He says of his daily experience: "The area by itself is like a huge sea, so you never know what kind of fish you're going to catch. What's needed for you is the passion, the passion to wait."

From spotting a majestic female leopard to seeing zebras traverse the landscape, this video gives good reason to add "safari" to your bucket list.
