Lion Feast

Lalibela2-333-Edit.jpg

On our 6:30am game drive today we saw the conclusion to yesterdays dramatic lion hunt. The pride (2 males and 2 females) brought down 3 zebras during the night. We saw blood and drag marks into the bush and our guide drove us into the area to witness the scene of the feast. All lions had eaten well, with full bellies and blood all over them. The half eaten zebra carcasses were nearby. Nature can be brutal at times but lions must eat to survive. Also saw scavengers such as Jackals hanging around waiting for the leftovers.

We also had an encounter with an angry bull elephant this morning. He was protecting his herd which included a baby so we did some serious reversing up a hill to escape.

Such an exciting trip.
