I didn’t plan on taking yesterday off of posting, but I had a last minute invite to play golf, and decided to do that instead of sit in front of the computer. While I do my best to keep to the schedule I have set for myself for posting, sometimes a bit of leeway is in order, especially to take advantage of the all too short summer we have up here.
As for today, I wanted to share some more images from this fantastic leopard sighting. The interaction we got to see between the cubs, and the cubs and their mom had all of us on the vehicle laughing. The cubs raced around, climbing on everything in sight, tackling, chasing and biting at each other and then took the occasional break to have a cuddle with mom before repeating the process over again.
I hope you enjoy my picks for today. Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead.
Starting a Monday off right with an elephant image 🙂 This group of bulls was part of a larger bachelor herd that had moved down to the Boteti River from the Nxai Pan area. They were enjoying being in an area with a lot of water; spending lots of time washing off the white mud from the pans and splashing in the river. Here, a pair of bulls face off while a third heads in to join the fun.
Today I felt inspired to share a few images from my last morning game drive before heading home from safari last May. It was a rather epic morning, featuring elephants, leopards and this pair of lions (basically an entire safari’s worth of sightings in one morning). After listening to lion calls whilst having our morning coffee and rusk stop, we found this pair a short distance away. They would walk together for a short distance along the road, stop and survey the area or lay down for a few minutes, and then carry on.
I hope you enjoy my selections; wishing you a wonderful week ahead.
Such an amazing animal to spend time with on safari. The social dynamics of the wild dog packs are fascinating to watch, though if they are on the move, it is nearly impossible to keep up with them. This pack member looks on while some other members were starting to get up and ready themselves to set off.
