The nose of your canoe cuts gently through the muddy water, and the river stretches far ahead, glinting in the sun. The banks are lined with giant trunks that explode in dense canopies of leaves far above. Technicolor macaws perch on outstretched branches, monkeys hoot and swing,  and somewhere in the undergrowth slinks a jaguar.

As you ease your canoe around a bend, you notice the landscape has changed: the trees are shorter, and the grass  is higher. This is savannah land, and you watch as a family of elephants ambles by, trunks swinging. In the distance, a pride of lions snoozes under a lone baobab tree.

While the sunset  fades  from orange to purple,  you pull your canoe to the river bank and find a place to sit. The night is alive here, and the air fills with the sounds of insects chirping and buzzing. The moon is full and you can see the outlines of bats as they swoop in pursuit of prey. Frogs croak and splash, and — was that a pair of eyes shining in the forest? Perhaps it was a python, coiled in a tree for the night, or perhaps a gorilla, come to see you, its strange simian cousin.
