I might believe it except for all the fences. We spent two weeks over Christmas (Dec 1995) in Botswana when our daughter and husband were in the Peace Corps and didn't see a fence the entire time we were there.
We did see zebra, giraffe, lions, antelope of all shapes and sizes, wart hogs, a gazillion monkeys, a five legged elephant and, most fascinating of all, hippos. Why? Because they have generally bad attitudes when it comes to humans, teeth that are sharp enough to eat bamboo, and can run at speeds up to 35 mph. I can't and never could, but I was surprised just how fast I could move when the need arose.
The best advice our guides gave us while touring the Okavango Delta was, "When I say run away, you run away very fast." On two occasions he did not have to repeat himself! Great fun.
"Plan? Plan! There ain't no plan."
