Unforgettable sighting!

“When he told guests they were going to wait with the lions for however long it took until they got something, I imagine it would have been quite an intimidating prospect for the guests to have objected!” This made me chuckle. Mike Miller intimidating….height maybe….but what a great time I had with him and Freddy in 2010. Always a ‘gentle’ person.

This is awesome. I can’t wait to see this occur in person. I have seen before & after kills, but never an action like this. My wish is to see blood dripping.


Love hearing that the sub is still making it! way to go B.B. !

Honestly, if one has the great fortune to be at Londolozi, it is important to listen to the guides and rangers and give yourself over to the experience. Dinner will wait, but the bush never does! Love Londolozi!!!

I am so happy that the young lioness, who has been bullied by the Majingilanes, made the kill, and got to eat. She is so skinny. If she survives to adulthood, she would be a tough and skillfull hunter. It is sad that the tailess Mother was no longer there to enjoy the meal with her daughters and grand daughter. I love the lions so much: the adult males, the lioness, the cubs, and especially the young males. They are the most magnificent and majestic creatures on Earth.
