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.more
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...more
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...more
Baboons love those seeds! The little guy,
having a good time! The Baboons didn't care we were near by. Plenty of DUNG ALL OVER!
With about 50,000 ELPHANTS in this park.
It's all over the place!
Favorite Dish: THE SEEDS, FOR THE BABOON!
We had the BILLONS OF STARS. We had
ELEPHANTS at a water hole. We had this
LIONESS pass right in front of us! Who would have thought we would see this. We're
having trouble finding the LIONS in the day
As always Drifters had hired a local guide to pick us up and drive us around. All our guides / drivers were very knowledgeable and very concerned about safety. When this lioness passed just a few meters behind our jeep to inspect us, we were told to sit tight and not make a move. Looks like she did not see us as competitors, she lay down, but kept...more
The watchful mom, like all moms! BUFFALOS are a little nasty anyway. Even more so with a calf tagging along and it's
getting hot and the ground is dry. So, she must be a bit hungry and a little testy!
Watch out and listen to your giude!
Most bring at least 5 rolls of film a day. Also,
add in the flying days. You should be all set!
The way I was going I wasn't going to have enough for 2wks. I slowed down. NOT-GOOD!
After some instrucitons by CRAIG. It was time for our first stalking!! It was chilly in the morn and very windy. Just follow your leader. Listen to him. Very exciting!! Will have to be part of the MOCK-CHARGE T-L!HWANGE PARK, 10/1999PS, notice the BARE FEET on CRAIG! 100% of the time he was like this. Every so often he would stop and scrape his...more
One of the strangest things I saw in Africa was this hippo in the water hole at Masuma Dam. When I approached the water hole I thought this hippo was dead and bloated in the middle of the pool. But no, every ten minutes or so the hippo would flip itself upright for a while and then once again flip itself over upside down so only its feet and...more
