She was petrified! Speaking of that horrible and scary night, Lucy said:

“My first night I was awoken by the thud of heavy footsteps – the unmistakable loud snort of a hippo ripping up big clumps of grass right outside my room.”

She was extremely close to one of the most dangerous animals on this planet and froze in fright. She remembers those moments vividly and described those moments clearly:

“Lying in bed I froze. My heart quickened,” 

She continued:

“I wasn’t going to chance a look from the open-air veranda and a stand-off with one of Africa’s most dangerous animals.”

Lucy went on to narrate how a lion similarly came close and right outside her hotel room. There was another terrifying time when a lion approached and stood outside her hotel room. Lucy elaborated:

“I also thought I heard a lion roar – but couldn’t be sure if it was a vivid dream. Next morning it was confirmed,”
