Sundowner time!

One of my absolute favourite things about being on safari is sundowner time. Celebrating the day you’ve just had and taking the time out to stop, listen to the sounds as the night time creatures spring to life, and watching the giant red sun drop like a ball to the horizon. A cold gin and tonic with ice, and maybe a few nibbles (wonderfully named “bitings” in East Africa) are the icing on the cake. Somehow this small tradition makes every day special and it’s something I sorely miss when I return home and realise I’m stuck behind my desk, or in a traffic jam and have missed another sunset.
