Beho Beho Bushblog – Onesmo – 23rd February

We finally received a very substantial amount of rain after many long hot days. Last night thunder and lightning took place before and during diner time before the rain started pouring down. It rained for quite some time, and when we got up this morning it was still drizzling. At the airstrip we saw a good number of animals including Giraffe, Impalas, Wildebeest and a pack of twelve hyenas sleeping on the side of the airstrip. They seemed to be well fed from last night but we did not see any sign of a kill around. We continued driving down through the plains and what a lovely drive we had.  At one point we stopped to look at the wildebeest bonding and showing all the courtship behaviour. Suddenly we heard Elephant trumpeting from the distance and followed by a heard of impalas running from something. We drove toward that direction and found a pack of wild dogs hunting. We stayed with them for one hour but no luck of a kill as all the impalas had gone into thick bushes so they found a nice puddle of water to play in. Seems that they will spend a day close to the camp today.
