Africa 2013 - TrekLightly

African Rock Python close encounter

We encountered this large python (5+ meters long) during our bush trek in the Serengeti Wilderness back country. We spent 4 day/nights in a restricted wildness zone of the National Park on foot. Our family was led by a Maasai bushman (with a bow and arrows) and our guide Gian (with a rifle) followed by our two boys, my wife, myself and a NP ranger bringing up the rear with a rifle.
