Beho Beho Bushblog – Salum – 30th October


It is still very dry although sometimes we get some rain. It was a Tagalala trip with three guests. We saw few plains animals on the way and a lot of Birds, Crocodile and Hippos in the lake. Because the Crocodiles are nesting now we see some nice interaction with Nile Monitor Lizards because they want to steal their eggs. When we got to the breakfast point it was so exciting because there was a pride of five Lions like a hundred meters east drinking. They looked like they were waiting for us to come over so that they could serve us breakfast. I have Never had this happen before, sitting down to a fantastic bush breakfast while we were watching some Lions drinking.
The following morning I took two guests for a morning drive to lake Manze. We started with Hyena eating baby Impala. Then we saw some more Hyena, some Buffaloes, Giraffe, Baboon, Warthog, Wildebeest, Zebra and Impala. When we got to the lake we saw a big breeding herd of Elephant. We watched them for quite some time and we counted sixty one Elephants. Then we saw another ten Elephants including two very small babies. This time was even better because they walked toward us and had a drink about seven metres from the vehicle. My highlight was a little Elephant who couldn’t manage to use his trunk for drinking so he bent his front legs and sucked the water up with his mouth. Then we saw a pride of four Lions including two sub adult male, one adult female and one adult male. When we were watching Lions herd of Impala came to drink then one sub adult male tried his luck but it was too open and the Impala took off.
