Music for a slideshow of our safari

I'm looking for ideas for music that evokes the essence of being on safari to use as a soundtrack for a slideshow of our recent trip to Africa.

I have already picked the usual ones : The Lion Sleeps Tonight, theme from "Out of Africa"; Jambo Bwana, Born Free, Africa by Toto.

Any other ideas out there???

Johnny Clegg, Freshly Ground, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, PJ Powers, Arno Carstens, Mango Groove.

All South African artists with distinctive African sounds. I'm sure you will find some inspiration, especially with Johnny Clegg.

I second the Johnny Clegg suggestion.

"Searching for the Great Heart", & "Scatterlings of Africa" spring to mind, to name just two of his excellent earlier songs.

SA National Anthem, the World in Union song from the 95 Rugby World Cup, special star by mango groove, and shoshaloza - there is a great acapella version of this.

I am a huge Jonny Clegg fan and asked permission if we could use some of his music on our web site. We could with pleasure...but sadly could not afford the huge fee or risk breaking copyright with his agents.
