Interesting behaviour. We saw a wildebeest calf running around with a herd of Impala. We thought it was lost.

Saw this in Chobe before arriving to Londolozi. Turns out the mother was taken down by a leopard and the lamb ran away. It began to follow a ram….. not sure how it all ended but was fascinating to watch.

During my visit there Guy mentioned that I write a blog and submit a few pictures to go along with it. He was to send me the link but I think he’s been busy and forgot. I’d like to submit my thoughts and a few of my favorite pics. Please advise how I would accomplish this via my email….. thanks!! ????????

Interesting case, I’ve heard of it happening with a few other animals
