The Great Migration Safari 2012: Day 9

Our final morning drive proved to be as productive as the rest of the safari.  Great sightings of two large male lions, two male cheetah on a fresh wildebeest kill, a baby giraffe and a troop of baboons giving us a show to remember – all topped off by mating ostriches!

Major sightings of the day:

  • Herd of elephants
  • Lions, 2 sightings (3 cubs and 2 large males)
  • 2 male cheetah, with fresh wildebeest kill
  • Giraffe and baby
  • Mating ostriches
  • Olive baboons, jumping over a stream
  • Eland

The Great Migration Safari 2012: Day 3

After all the crossing madness yesterday, we were hoping for some more action, but the wildebeest had other ideas. Three different lion sightings picked the day up, including a double kill (2 lioness’ each caught an adult zebra in one go).  A parade of the usual suspects kept the cameras clicking all through the day, and the massive rain clouds that were building provided a perfect background for some awesome images!

Major sightings of the day:

  • 3 prides of lions, 1 with 2 zebra kills
  • Many pods of hippos with babies
  • Very large crocodiles
  • Kirks Dik-Dik
  • Topi Antelope
  • Zebra
  • Eland
  • Gathering herds of wildebeest
  • Warthogs with very small piglets
  • Secretary birds
