Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 24th June

As the days go by the bush is getting drier and drier! Good game is still around the camp and at the   lakes and water sources the animals are starting to congregate. Yesterday I took four guests for a morning drive, we had a fantastic time because the weather was good and we saw so much! We started our drive with a bull Elephant, who crossed the road in font of the car and we had such a fantastic view of him walking up the hill. After about one minute we saw one lioness by her self walking on the road from the battlefield to the Killifish crossing. We followed her for a long time because she was on the hunt. When we got to the killifish crossing she decided to sit and started to roll in the sand and clean herself. We watched her for some time before we carried on.  Then we saw some other animals like Impala, Wildebeest, Warthog, Baboon, Giraffe with very small baby, Waterbuck, three big Eland bulls and side striped Jackal. When we got to just after Pelican pan we saw One Male Lion (one of the three musketeers) our dominant Lions who just killed a baby Hippo. He was beside the kill panting away! We watched it for a long time hoping he might eat but he didn’t and we finished our drive with the magnificent bull Elephant at the battlefield. He is a good tusker. And this morning I woke up to Hippos laughing about five and when it got to six I started hearing baboons shouting. It was so noisy down in the Msine valley.  Later on I heard a Male Leopard roaring. I didn’t know what happened to create all that noise!

    Salum,
    Have you seen or heard of any baby leopards?
    Hope you find the wild dogs for the Flints and the Landii.
