Heather and Nate's African Adventure travel blog

A picture of our Safari group. 9 to 1 ratio.

After a good night's sleep in a hostel in Livingstone, Heather and I asked the security guards at our hostel to get us a taxi to take us to the Zambia Waterfront hotel to meet up with our tour group. The taxi we got was a super compact car (like a Geo Metro) that had no business being a taxi. Nonetheless, we both piled in with all our luggage. My head was against the ceiling of the taxi and my knees at about shoulder level, because of the lack of leg room. Needless to say, we were just happy to make it to our destination safely.

As we waited for our group, it started to become more and more apparent that there were not very many men in the group. In fact, it finally came out that I was the only male in the group besides the tour leaders. That would be nine single women to one Nate! Overmatched is how I felt. My initial thought was that being the center of gossip circles can not be a positive thing. However, as the trip went on I realized that each person in our group was great in their own way. Later in the trip some other men from other safari groups kept telling me how lucky I was to be in such a situation!
