I wonder if any of those eles was the young calf that we all see slowly lose its mother last year. I hope the little one survived and thrived.

Looked like a good drive this morning WS.

Another brilliant Drive this morning, we are following Karula, and her two Cubs as I'm posting this. Some great pics of them. Mark the presenter thinks Karula is taking the Cubs to a kill she has stashed


Karula on top of a Termite mound

The Male Cub moving round the Jigga

The Female Cub tried to catch a Squirrel, it really was high up for a small Cub

The Male Cub decided it was a bit to high for him

The Cubs had fallen behind Karula, so she stopped on the log, and called them to her

Last to catch up was the Male, then they vanished in the drainage line


The end of a wonderful mornings Drive

Just a quick shot from the end of the Drive this morning. The Baby Hippo on the left is called Storm, it was born the day of the last big storm there, that caused all the damage to the communication systems.

A couple of Hippos chilling out this morning.

Then the Gowrie Gang Baboons were moving along, and sitting down in a herd of Impala



This is not a very clear shot, but it shows Shirly one the young Baboon Mothers with her baby Evelyn riding on her back


Mark was trying to find Induna, one of Karulas sons from her second litter. He had deduced from tracks that he had made a kill some time earlier, but the kill had been grabbed, and dragged off by Hyenas. As we were watching the Impala, and the Baboons, a call came in that Induna was in the area, unfortunately thats when the cam went off stream

Oh My Goodness WS those drives have been spectacular, the sunset is just out of this world and i'm so envious you saw Karula and her cubs but so delighted they are looking so well. What a shame you didn't get to see Induna, he is so handsome, was there any news about Mixo?
Loved little Storm, so cute.
Thanks so much for all the pics and news, I really enjoyed looking through and catcing up cheers

Lions today Guys. We followed a group of 5 Lionesses. There are 7 in the Pride, but two are away having Cubs. They will be great to watch if we catch up with them later. This group settled down right in front of the Jigga

They were testing the air as though there was something interesting ahead

Then they lost interest, and lay down again

Mark the presenter was telling how to identify individual Lions, by the whisker dots on the face. If you look at the top line of dots on this shot, there is a another dot above the second in the line, and the fourth in the line. Thats the identification, each Lions are different, rather like our fingerprints

Great to hear about the pride WS and even more exciting that two are having cubs.

I seem to remember Mara Predator Project gave information on how to ID lions by their whisker dots.
