Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 28th June

This afternoon I took a family of three for the drive to lake Manze. We left camp about three and we had such an amazing time. Our lovely drive started at the battlefields where we saw a family of four Elephants. Two were adults and two youngsters but one was so small. It was really nice because they were grazing and coming towards the road. After a few minutes they walked about twenty metres away from our vehicle. Then we saw many animals like Dwarf Mongoose, Baboon, Wildebeest, Impala, Waterbuck, Giraffe, Side striped Jackal, Eland, Zebra, more Elephants and beautiful birds. We had such a fantastic drive to the lake. The aim of going to lake Manze was to find the Lions eating an Impala, which had been seen by Heribert earlier on this morning. When we got to the sight what we saw was one Lappet faced Vulture and six Marabou storks only and the Lions were gone. We had to look in every bush till we gave up and we carried on with drive. We stopped near the Lake and watched Buffalo wallowing and birds, there were a big flock of African open billed storks. All of a sudden we heard lion growling. When we went to where we heard the growling we saw five of them including a cub of about six months, one young male and three females that were near the lake. It was such a nice sight because the young male went to test the old female to see if she was in oestrous but the female wasn’t happy at all because he was the boy from the pride. Also we had another show of mother and the cub playing. It was really awesome! We had our lovely sundowner at little Serengeti watching animals. It was my first time to go to Manze this year.
