What to do when a baby lion steals your flip-flops

A really cute video of a guy’s visit to a wild game preserve to do volunteer work.


He went to the Marakele Predator Centre in the town of Thabazimbi, South Africa.  It’s not cheap to volunteer  – it costs around $800US per week, with a minimum two-week stay.  And you sleep in tents.

But, that’s a bit more than $100/day, which you’d probably spend on accommodations anyway – and you wouldn’t have cute little lion cubs chewing your sandals.  And these places need to make money in order to survive, so I’m cool with that.

This would be a dream to do.  Some day. Enjoy.
