If I were in camping lonely in Africa, I'd like to have a guide with me who explains me all the important things to know. For instance, he should show me how to be aware of wild animals in particular. As I don't know Africa's countryside at all, he should be able to conduct me easily if I didn't know the way anymore. Especially in the nights I'd be glad to have a personal companion if there were some strange animals just infront of my tent.
(Sorry about the stupid topic, It is already late in the evening and my concentration isn't good at all...)
