    Watching the prey

    Lioness watching the prey, Hwange
    4 more images

    A good guide always finds something interesting to see! We did not see the kill, the lionesses had already finished their first meal. Three of them where resting in a shadow, one was inspecting us and the fifth one was watching the prey. And with a good reason, jackals were luring around, and vultures were waiting for their turn.

    Hippos at Manduva Damn

    Hippos at Manduva

    If you like hippos, check out Manduva Damn. There are plenty here. There is a lunching spot near the damned water where you can get out and stretch your legs and watch the hippos and other things they may come along if your lucky. We spotted roan antelope, and saddle billed stork as well. This is also a good sundowner spot. It is close to Sinametella, so you can get back to the camp ground before sunset.

    "A MUST NOT SEE!"

    by safardreams Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We didn't even get to camp yet! We had ZEBRA, GIRAFFE, WART-HOGS ECT. My
    ELEPHANTS!! But this one we saw something wrong! Notice the funny bend in it's trunk!
    Thats a WIRE-SNARE doing that! Really bad stuff! It didn't look good. All 5 of us were troubled by this. Asking if a VET would come out and take care of it. No, too much money. We thought about all of us chipping in and getting this fixed! It never happened. Later
    at camp, CRAIG VAN ZYL our guide had to call it in. They would have someone track it down. Put it out of it's misery! Couldn't do anything! Craig also, as it turns out is also a
    HUGE ELEPHANT LOVER!

    Saddle-billed Stork, Hwange

    Except for the vultures we did not see many birds in Hwange. I had to search the web to find the name of this one. It has alarge yellow spot on the beak, which is not visible on this picture.

    Drinking giraffe, Hwange

    This is the most dangerous thing a giraffe can do, lucky for him that the lions were full! And lucky for him to have another (the mother?) standing guard (pic 2)

    Zebra, Hwange
    2 more images

    Seems like this zebra was as curious about us as we were about it. Not shy at all. Maybe they have gotten too used to people, which is not good for them when it comes to poachers!

    Vultures

    This is the reason why our guide could lead us to the buffalo killing site: He had spotted these vultures from far away, how they were sitting, waiting for their turn.

    Protecting the baby, Hwange

    Hwange does not get much rain even in the wet season, which is why people have helped the animals by making water holes for them.

    Look how protecting the grown elephants are to the little one!
