Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 18th June

I was woken up by three bull Elephants feeding outside my house. Then they walked to the water hole (in front of the camp) for a drink before disappearing in to the bushes. This evening I took one guest for an evening drive. We left the camp at four thirty and we went to Sean’s cliff.  The Battlefield was spectacular with lots of animals; we saw Giraffe, Zebra, Impala, Wildebeest and Warthog grazing together. Ten or fifteen metres before Selous grave we saw five Lions, sleeping in the bush. It was dangerous for anyone coming from the Tagalala side because they could get out of the vehicle to see the grave without spotting those Lions. After enjoying watching them we carried on and we saw Green backed Heron perching in a tree, a juvenile Bateleur Eagle and a Martial Eagle. After the Msine crossing we saw about twenty Giraffe together which was beautiful. At Sean’s cliff we saw six Elands, which were so relax, and it was my best sight of them, also we saw Blue monkey, Baboon, Impala and Elephant digging and drinking in the riverbed. Then we had an amazing sunset while watching these animals. Soon after the sunset we left to see how the Lions were doing. We saw them but they had moved about ten metres from where they were before but this time they were active. Just after dinner I heard a Lion roar closer to the camp then Leopard roaring at Msine River. In the morning I asked the Masai who told me that three young male Lions came to drink at the waterhole.
