Expertly Wrangled


When Megan Packard-Hillegas journeyed to South Africa, it was to see elephants (including Rambo here), lions, giraffes, zebras, hippos, water buffaloes, cheetahs, rhinos, monkeys, warthogs, and sharks — which she and her family did. But our production czarina didn’t expect to find herself in a stalled jeep, way too close to a snarling lioness with a fresh kill and cubs playing all over her. Nothing compared to Indy deadline stress, of course. Safely back in Zulu Nyala Game Reserve, their guide, Amon, kept them on track for adventures like stalking a leopard at night.
