An ostrich carcass and a lion in a tree – that’s an extra dose of the unusual! How are the ostriches faring these days (besides this unfortunate one)?
While out on a morning game drive we received a radio call from Kelsey informing us that she had found a number of lions in the southwestern grasslands after a successful tracking mission. As they were following the lions, one female ran ahead and climbed into a marula tree. Now we know there are only a few reasons lions would choose to climb into a tree and going after a carcass was the case in this particular sighting. Not just any carcass but an ostrich of all animals.
Being a little distance away, I did my best to get across to where they were in the hopes of seeing the lioness still in the tree. We then get a chance to sit with these lions and admire what great condition they are in.

It is a serious dose of unusual. The ostriches are doing well, there is now a fairly healthy population of them in the southwestern grasslands.
