The Kill

If one watches animal programs on TV one usually sees the Lions running after the prey and then eating the animal. The struggle for food/life in between is rarely ever shown.

A few days ago my guests, Bheki and I watched such a struggle. The strength of the Zebra, the rush of adrenaline and the persistence and power of the Lions could be observed.

I was able to get one good images that documents this struggle (it all happened at night and we were using spotlights). Please do not click on this link if images of such scenes disturb you.

Summer Sunset

20130103 - CS2_6561 - E - SIG

Yesterday evening we spent the sunset time next to our largest waterhole watching Cape Buffalo having their evening drink stop.

A great way to end a game drive with Giraffe, Sun Spider, Cheetah, Wild Dog, Yellow-billed Kite, Leopard Tortoise, Tawny Eagle, Lions and Cape Buffalo.
