Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 26th Feb


Another fantastic day in the bush.  I was with one guest for the morning drive heading to Lake Manze. We saw such nice animals on the way to the lake including Elephant, Giraffe, Buffalo, Hippo, Zebra, Wildebeest, Impala, Warthog, Baboon, Vervet Monkey and Side striped Jackal (which we do not see often). At the lake we saw one male Lion (one of the three Musketeers) and two Lionesses. On the way back just after Pelican pan we saw a pack of fifteen Wild Dogs including seven puppies. This is another pack not the one I saw two days ago at Tagalala. Some of them were sitting in the shade and others were cooling themselves in the water hole.

In the afternoon I took four guests to see them. On the way the vehicle was almost covered with Northern Carmine Bee eaters. I call them Red Arrows because when the vehicle is moving they are following it so that they can get grasshoppers which are trying to escape from the vehicle.  So the way they maneuvering are like Red Arrows. Luckily we saw the Wild Dogs at the same spot still in the shade and some of them slept near to the water hole. We had a fabulous sundowner while we were watching both Wild Dogs and the full moon rising.

    It’s 3 years ago this month that I was with you, with my friends, and trying to photograph those Red Arrows! Seems like yesterday although the memory is fading but I have my photographs. An amazing 3 days which I wish I could repeat. Perhaps, one day. I love seeing your beautiful smile Salum and your passion for the job comes through in your blog posts.
