This may seem odd....but here goes! I am researching holiday to Africa for next summer and would love to go on safari. I would not mind meeting a lion but if I saw a mouse, rat or anything similar I would die. I know they are around me here but they sort of stay out of my way if you know what I mean. Can anybody reassure me that they don't dance around you or run around freely in the national parks? My family think I am crazy but I just could't go if I thought I would be guaranteed sitings of these terrifying things.
