Which celebs have you encountered on safari?

Saw this header on the USA forum and thought it might be fun for the Africa folks...

Met Maria Bello ("Coyote Ugly", et al) at Mombo a few years back. Got scolded by Nicky for not knowing who she was at the time (although I was busy chatting with her).

This past December, sat with Peter Gabriel and his band on the VA flight from JNB to LHR (the evening after they played at the 46664 World AIDS Day Concert at Ellis Park in JNB). He I did recognize straight away and I had a brief chat with him. I had watched his performance live on TV earlier that afternoon.

Once almost had my camera snatched away after inadvertently taking a photo with a Saudi Prince in the shot (I had no idea) during a site visit at Royal Malewane - that was a weird one.

I guess I'm not really very star-struck; my true heroes are not famous.

Anyone else want to chime in?

James
