Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 10th Oct

Our fantastic morning started just at the camp where we saw three big breeding herds of Buffalo, a family of Elephants, Hippo, Eland, Zebra and Impala on the open Plains. As we left camp at the international Airport (Terminal one) we saw Hyena and some Giraffe. We saw more herds of Buffalo at the Kill fish crossing and one at the lake and some Elephants. Also we saw about five flocks of Ground hornbills. There were also three troops of Baboons and one of them we saw eating a baby Impala just before Pelican pan. Warthogs were everywhere, running with their tails up like antenna and so many baby Impalas. We stopped for our picnic breakfast at the lovely spot where we could watch animals drinking. After breakfast we carried on our drive and we even saw one Kongoni (Hartebeest) which we are not seeing often trotting to the water and she was in front of a herd of Wildebeest as if she was leading them. At the lake as usual there were a lot of animals (Impala, Baboon, Zebra, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Buffalo, and Elephant) all going to drink and we manage to see one Lioness hunting Wildebeest but she didn’t succeed. Later on we saw two Lionesses and one Lion but when we saw them they were chasing an Impala and one Lioness had got a baby Impala already and one Lioness was serious on the chase.  I couldn’t believe that we had seen them manage to kill a baby Impala because it was in the open and Impala saw them from a distance. The clever thing the Lions did was to push them towards the water. We watch them eating till they had finished. So this morning was saw three baby Impala eaten. On the way back guest shouted at me that they have seen Hyena as I stopped we saw it clearly and it wasn’t Hyena but was a Leopard stalking a baby Impala and he tried to chase it but the Impala ran away.
