Tonight, my guests and I followed a herd of elephants through a very big riverbed. The tracks were fresh therefore we knew we were close by. Unfortunately, we got stuck in the riverbed, trying for almost an hour to dig ourselves out. Luckily we managed to get out but we then didn’t have enough sun light to continue our search.

By a huge amount of luck, we found our big male lion mating with another female. This is a sighting that does not occur very often. So hopefully we will have a few new cubs to welcome to the Kapama family in the near future.
