The Male Lions here are Nomadic Males that popped in from Namibia a few months ago - 3 or 4 males (can't remember now ) Blame it on the Pandemic !!! I'm losing it ...... 

 

Who doesn't like a Piggy back ride !!! 

 

The Impala were alarmed - but, we couldn't find anything around ...... We did look!

Love the Lechwes Hari - one thinks it might be easy getting shots like that, given how common they are. But I never really managed jumping photos like that.

Holy Leaping Lechwe Batman!  I like the hyena as a chia pet in progress.   While I prefer the live cheetah, both adults and cubs, the phone cover is impressive as well.  Just like Batman, you made it out of danger just in time before Covid really hit.

Today's episode - Wattled Crane and the pack of 5 - We saw tracks in the morning on the way to camp ......... Spencer mentioned we check Muddy waters in the afternoon when we head out ......... Muddy Waters it was!!!! They weren't moving however ....... we sat until Poster came to the sighting and left to do some general game and to let us know if they were waking up ...... they didn't budge ......... Oh well!

More general game ......

 

On a slow game drive, We suddenly came across fresh blood all over the ground ......... Spencer mentioned that it was a Zebra that was bleeding badly ....... after following the tracks for a KM or so - there was a Zebra and her foal that was dripping blood profusely after having survived a Lion attack at some point?? We let them be .......  We weren't able to check on them the next morning ! (them spotted cats got in the way ! ) ........ More tomorrow!!

Finally got to enjoy your latest Kwando adventure, Hari. Loved the iPhone case with the cheetah art juxtaposed against actual cheetahs in the Bush. Reminds me, the case that is, of our GTG lunch along with @Safaidude In which I wore my cheetah necktie in your honor! That was way too long ago. 
 

Thanks for the brilliant pictures which are such a treat during this now 6 week lockdown here. 
 

PS: I was coincidentally at a conference with over 7k people in LV at the same time you in AA. Seemed a different world back then which was also my last plane ride. The pandemic was looming but far away with no checks at all. Then it hit us like a tsunami.
