Some last appetizers before the report!   Swainson's francolin     Ground hornbill     And last but not least, the Tsaro pride  

It isn't the first time I post this pic. For me, it tells a story about lion's determination to hunt buffalo.

Too cute ... this aardwolf   More pics to come from mid October.

Now THAT's a LION.

 

I hope Johan shows his pic of Silvereye, just after she ate.

Wild dogger, sad to see one of the boys like this.

 

Thanks everyone, we'll see if Silver Eye makes her appearance at some point. ;)

AKR1, you must be very tall to get an angle like that...

I would ask what is causing them to bound through the water?

The stunning Duba Plains concession (NG 23). With or without lion/buffalo interaction, one of the planet's great safari destinations!

I agree, although I'm a bit concerned now that it is a Great Plains operation.

Nice johan. I would love to get a photo of a lion/ess doing that at dawn with steam breath visible... but the unco-operative brutes simply won't comply with my requests!

Why the concern about Great Plains? It is owned by the Jouberts whose credentials speak for themselves. The only concern I have is the possibility of what I call the Momboization of some of their camps such as Zafara and Mara Plains, and if Duba Plains goes the same route making it unaffordable. On the other hand if the market will bear it what's wrong with that?
