Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 24th June

Today I went to pick up two guests at the Hot springs. I left camp about eight twenty and on the way I saw a lot including a breeding herd of Elephants, Buffalo, Giraffe, Warthog, Zebra, Wildebeest, Hippo, Baboon and Impala. Just after Msine river crossing I saw two Hyenas running to the forest and on the plains I saw so many Vultures landing and some were already on the ground. They were Lappet Faced Vulture, White-headed Vulture, Palm nut Vulture, White backed Vulture and Hooded Vulture. There was nothing much left, it was just the leg of young Zebra. I think the Hyena killed it. Then I carried on, just after Sean’s cliff I saw a breeding herd of Wildebeest that were heading towards Tagalala. Suddenly I saw them running back towards me, I looked carefully I saw a Lioness holding the mouth of one of the Wildebeest. I watched the kill until three one-year-old cubs came and the Wildebeest felt down. When I left they were opening the stomach. On the way back with my guest we saw them again but they were under the bushes with their kill.

In the evening I took four guests for an evening drive. When we were at terminal one building (Beho Beho International) we saw many Vultures circling to the west of the runway. When we got there we saw two Hyenas eating a young Giraffe. There were many Vultures on the ground and in the sky. It is very interesting watching Hyena and Vulture eating. We watched the feeding frenzy for an hour. We saw Ruppell’s Grifon Vulture as well. Then we went on the plains where we saw a lot including big bull Elephants and Eland.
