    in Of Interest

    As a longtime safari guide, Marco Tonoli has some stories to tell. As an expert photographer and videographer, he tends to tell them with a camera in his hand. Here he brings us the tale of an encounter with lions that went seriously wrong, due to some dangerously erratic behavior…but not on the part of the lions.

    OMG!!! Marco!!! I can’t believe what a hair raising adventure. Yikes. Don’t know if my heart would have continued pumping while watching you throughout that confrontation!!

    Wow Marco – that’s a story to tell over an over.
    I don’t know how I would have reacted in such a situation, certainly a lot less self processed! Did you ever use that scout again?
    Best to you and yours,
