Safari holidays could lead to national acclaim

Going on a safari could result in national acclaim, if one person's experiences are anything to go by.

American Roy Corbin went on a wildlife excursion in Kenya in 2008 and managed to capture a video of a hippopotamus attacking a crocodile, which is now being used by National Geographic, the Charleston Daily Mail reports.

The 36-year-old said: "It's an unusual thing to see in the wild. They [National Geographic] happened to come across it on YouTube and want to use it in some kind of production they're putting together."

This could inspire others to go on safari holidays as Mr Corbin was simply taking a trip with his father-in-law and other friends.

Earlier this year, it was revealed Rosemary Accri, a grandmother from West Hazleton, put her huge collection of images of elephants, rhinos, leopards, lions, wildebeest and giraffes while on safari on display for others to admire, Standard Speaker reported.
