How many concealed countries from around the world are you able to uncover in the following story? There are 27 lurking in here.

I needed a holiday in order to renew zeal and interest in my job. In their eagerness to help, the travel agency sold me a package to go on safari in Africa, which I naturally leapt at.

At the tiny airstrip the pilot descended to land, or rather, attempted to land in the bush. Tumbling from the tiny plane, facing the wind, I almost fainted when I noticed a lion cub about to pounce. I cautiously observed the animal in the tree, but as I was unwell, suffering from swollen glands, I kept a safe distance, then I geriatrically hobbled away. The pilot, who was also acting as our guide, advised us to give the animal a wide berth, even though only a young cub. ‘Fix it in the eye, men ‘ he instructed dramatically, but it was too late. It pounced, scratching the pilot badly, and in his pain, he gestured to a drab hut and started to sprint on gallantly to the safety of the building. Although I had experienced danger many times before, I ran for shelter. Once inside, I decided to double check my insurance renewal, especially since one of our number had been injured already. I was in danger of losing the money that I bet on emerging unscathed from this safari. I would either have to give up or tug alarmingly at my reserves of courage to carry on. I had been expecting to see impala, ostrich, adders and other exotic wildlife. We ate supper unusually early that evening, in the hopes of seeing a bonobo or perhaps a moa in the inspiring ambiance that is Central Africa.

If you want to find out if you are correct, you will find the answer in the book *mischievous grin*
