Following on from last week’s Virtual Safari we find the same lioness now in the company of a different Ndzhenga Male lion. Unsure of whether the two were about to begin the mating process, we sit and wait to find out.
While we are on the trend of animals mating or falling pregnant, we spend the afternoon with a pack of wild dogs milling about in the shade. When our attention is drawn to the fact that the alpha female is looking heavily pregnant. This is incredibly unusual for this time of the year, but may be a result of her having lost her litter of pups very early on in the breeding season of 2021. Potentially allowing her to come back into oestrus and therefore fall pregnant again. We hope that as the pack will get up and start moving they go past a stunningly scenic part of the Sand River for a drink.
We then spend the morning with a Nkoveni Female’s two energetic and playful daughters. The two have provided some valuable game viewing over the least few weeks, with next week’s Virtual Safari focusing on a number of unbelievable sightings of the two.
Enjoy this Virtual Safari…
