When arriving back from a week’s leave, I am always excited to get started with my first game drive for the month. So I took my new group of guests out with a large amount of enthusiasm. As we drove along we found some fresh lion tracks and decided to follow them. We didn’t follow for ten minutes and there they were in the distance. Unfortunately, we could only see the flicker of the tails so we slowly tried to make our way closer to them.
We watched the three lionesses for about twenty minutes then decided to go find some elephants. With the herd of elephants were two small babies play fighting. It was quite funny because they still didn’t know how to use their trunks. The mom eventually came along and stopped the fight and took the ‘kids’ to the watering hole for some water.
This was a fun drive and we all enjoyed it immensely.
