I don’t really know why it’s called camp unicorn as I didn’t see any unicorn’s.  It’s located in the northern part of South Africa and is in the middle of many, many acres of land held in trust to protect and help reintroduce the very rare white lion.  We stayed here for a week and took daily excursions into the bush surrounding the encampment to track and make sure the lions were safe.  Quite an experience, indeed.

Being from the northern hemisphere, I don’t get to see the stars from the southern half of Earth very often.  So, as a lover of the night sky, regardless of location, I reveled in discovering some of the ones showing themselves in South Africa.  Taken from just outside one of the huts we were staying in at the white lion preserve in the Timbavati region of NE South Africa, the southern cross shows itself to the left of the tip of the hut.  The 2 bright stars just above the cross are Alpha & Beta Centauri, known as the pointers.
