Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 22nd Oct

salumblog

Since it has been raining the scenery has changed, it looks lush and green. It is so beautiful. Game drives have been great as well. Starting with the Beho Beho River, I have done two drives and we have seen the little antelope called Suni, Blue monkeys and Colobus monkeys. At the quarry we had a pride of seven lions for two days and our big bull Elephant is still around.  At Salum’s road we had a good sighting of two civets which I think were having a romantic moment.  Yesterday I was with two guests on a morning drive and just after the Msine crossing on the way to Tagalala we saw dead Hippos in the small water hole and so many Vultures. Some were in the trees and some on the ground. Also there were about fifteen Hyenas having a feast. It is always very interesting to watch Hyena’s eating because it is very quick; a lot of pushing each other and it is very noisy, because it was in the water it was even better to watch.  I don’t know how many photos the guest took but I heard a lot of click click! Then at the Salum’s road we saw a Pride of ten Lions including three males (three musketeers our dominant males) which we don’t often see together, two females and five cubs. As usual the lion cubs were very active so we enjoyed watching them for a long time. After that we another exciting time where we saw baby Impala that had just been born. We watched the mother cleaning it and the little baby was struggling to stand up.

    Dear Salum,
    What a great pleasure to read all your exciting reports, to be able to ‘be there’ thanks to the magic of your pictures and stories.
    We met in Beho Beho in February this year and went out on the 26th to see the Carmine Bee Eaters flying around the car. We had this wonderful encounter with the Wild Dogs. Do you
    remember?
    I subscribed to your blog two weeks ago and it is a great joy for me every time I get news from all of you. To hear about the breathing of nature and the wilderness ‘out there’ is wonderful.
    I hope to be back soon !
    Thank you very much.
    A big hug to all of you !
    Pia Muller (from Luxembourg)
