Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 16th September

I was with a couple doing the morning game drive. We started at the Terminal one (Beho Beho International) where we saw limping Hyena. It was so sad because its left front leg was in the air (lifted) and he struggled to walk with three legs. We didn’t know what had happened to him. At the quarry we saw a breeding herd of Eland, Warthog, Wildebeest and five old Buffalo bulls. On the open plains before Tamlyn’s plain we saw a bull Elephant. We stopped and watch him feeding and he came near to the car and walked in front of us. Then we saw other animals like Baboon, Giraffe and Zebra. As we got to Pelican pan we had rain, but it didn’t last long. Just after the rain the sun came out and it was beautiful in the east and the west was still dark because of the clouds. Because of the moisture in the sky the light formed a beautiful rainbow. We stopped to watch it for a few minutes before carrying on our drive. At the beginning of the lake as normal there were big herds of animals queuing to drink. But the herd which was nearest the water stopped and looked south where we spotted two male Lions. One was sleeping and another was looking at the animals which were coming to drink. When we where watching them we heard one male calling and these two replied and walked towards the one who was calling them. We went under the Tagalala tree for tea and coffee while watching animals and still we could see the Lions walking. After our tea and coffee we followed those Lions and we found them with a fresh young Giraffe kill. There were two Lionesses and three Males. I think the two females were the ones that killed the Giraffe. Then Crocodile came out of the lake and tried to scare the Lions so that they could take the kill but it didn’t work. We watch them open the stomach and start to eat the internal organs. Then they dragged it to the shade.
