There is something special about being with in arms reach of an animal that could potentially kill you.  You rise a 5am pile in to a open sided 4x4 Land Cruiser and set out.  The sun hasn't risen the air is cold, really cold, luckily we are provided with blanks which we wrap up in like burritos.  I'm in Chobe Game Lodge in Botswana.  We are on the hunt for the big 5.

My rifles - a 200-400mm and 2.0x extender, 70-200mm amongst others and a D800 and a D4s. 

It is an experience that I will never forget and I hope I can relive.
