The Great Migration Safari 2013: Day 5

Fantastic interaction between 2 male lions, 3 large bull buffalo and 5 hyaena kept us busy for most of the morning as they squabbled over the rights to a zebra kill.  The single lioness with the 3 small cubs showed herself again as well as a pride of 16 lions later in the afternoon.  2 more lionesses with a wildebeest kill, a hyaena with 4 youngsters and a very obliging black rhino finished off our day just in time to get back to camp before a spectacular African storm rolled in.

Major sightings of the day:

  • 2 male lions on a zebra kill
