Almost eaten by a lioness

I decided to start my new DT blog with story from my travels in Africa (Tanzania o be precise)

I've been in Tanzania for 3 weeks with one of my best buddies - Liad (he claims to be the only one).

Anyway, we started our trip with 6 days in the safari. On the second day we got to the famous Serengeti reservation.

In the camp (we slept in tents), there were 2 cages. One was the kitchen and one was the dinning room - here humans are in the cage.

During the day we've traveled with ORV around the huge Serengeti, seeking for animals - especially the cats (Lions, Cheetahs and Leopards).

During the night we ate dinner in the cage and waited to see one of the cooks being eaten by a lioness which came to drink some water (real story, I'm not joking).

I was walking around in the camp, which I forgot to mention was without any fence, with a camera - waiting for that moment.

In the morning we counted the number of cooks in the camp, and I'm still sure there were less than in the night before...

I can tell you, a lion has an instinctive fear of humans, but during the night that can change!

Well... Lioness can't cook... :-0

I was waiting to watch a live human (occupation: cook) to be eaten by a lioness.
There was a lioness close to the water tank and she came to drink (dry season).
The cooks went in groups to the water tank and made a lot of noise so she wouldn't get near.
I was with my camera on stand-by just in case things will get wrong...
