Beho Beho Bushblog – Onesmo – 16th February

New lions are about to come out. One of the Manze pride seems to be lactating but we have not seen the cubs yet. The lactating female seems to hang around the lake and we have seen her disappearing into one of the gullies where it is very dense and difficult to see what is going on. I personally think this is where she has the cubs and it will take her a few weeks to bring the cubs out. Yesterday we went to Tagalala and on the way we saw lots of different game as we drove. Among these were a hyena and lioness who happened to be sleeping very close to each other without noticing. The hyena moved out of the ditch when it heard the car and stopped a few yards from where it was resting, the strange thing is when he turned around and looked back at the bush he had just come from. He looked for a while before he moved away. We got closer and we realized there was a lion resting under the same bush. What a surprise for the hyena because he had no idea that the lion was that close. We then moved on to the lake and had so much wildlife coming down for water. The bird life is so nice and one can see big flocks of Pelicans arriving at the lake. Having dry weather brings lots of game to the lakes. I believe we will get some rain very soon because it is getting very hot, and windy which is the sign of the rain. Lots of fun here as usual.
