In this week’s episode (listen here), Hadley and Jomi share some more of their wildest and most memorable experiences in the bush. Listen to their stories about:

-Getting charged by a warthog (yes, a warthog)

-Leopards walking behind their bed

-Elephant traffic in camp

-Hadley bumping into an elephant at night!

 

These stories will show you why the bush is such an addicting and exciting place to live!
