In the early light of the morning we were out looking for the illusive big cats and we were lucky.
While heading to a spot where male lion with a kill were spotted the day before, suddenly a leopard was quickly glancing at us and just as quickly disappeared in the bushes.
When we arrived at the spot where the male lion were seen, nothing was there, not even a tiny piece of the kill, a young hippo. So we carried on and suddenly a herd of zebra, eland and impala ran out of a little forest. A cheetah came with them, obviously seeing something interesting while being carefully observed by the antelopes and zebras from a save distance.
That was not all. Our driver told us that he had spotted a lion on a termite mount, well at least he could see him, we didn’t, even with binoculars. We headed to the spot and there was a sub adult male lion enjoying the morning sun.
All that happened within the proximity of the camp and during about two hours of our game drive. Not to forget the beautiful sunrise and the several herds of elephant roaming the area as well.
