We found this female on our first game drive.
She was ambling along scent marking and generally trying to ignore us
The "eyes" have it!
She was very relaxed although she did not still for extended periods
Caught in the act...
On a mission...
Like our cat at home,
tail proudly in the air
I thought that this was as close as I was going to get to Lion.
We did not see any on our drives...
And then, on our FINAL drive we found THIS...
A coalition of four young males on a buffalo kill.
I was able to get images of three as the fourth vanished for a nap as we arrived
Considering they had killed this buffalo the night before,
there was not much left of the carcass
Sunlight on the mane
"I am trying to give mouth-to-mouth,
but it seems that I am too late"...
Full belly, almost time for a nap
There was still meat on the back legs
Bonding time...for now.
In years to come, these youngsters could turn on each other
Taking a breath...
"This buffalo tasted GOOD"...
One of the other guests on the vehicle captures the scene.
All images were taken on game drives from Hamiltons Tented Camp.
