In the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle by Afeefah K. '21

@NatGeo, pls hire me

During my trip to Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa I spent two days on a Game Reserve. We stayed on the very top of a hill in Hluhluwe , sleeping in actual huts. It was foggy and when it rained it was absolutely magnificient. Oh and there were lots of baboons too. We drove into the game reserve at sunrise and sunset to experience the animals in their natural habitat, relatively untouched by mankind. During one of our drives, we nearly got charged by a white rhino. I took a lot of photos. And the world needs to see them.
