It was very hot in the afternoon and Simon was about to set lunch for his guests under the Acacia tree, when he saw lions a kilometer away. They decided to drive near them only to find Old lioness being trailed by a pride of lion, as it was an intruder. Sudenly they heard a loud groaning sound which was scary and the poor lioness was in the middle covered by the entire pride. Although later it managed to escape the damage was already done and its body covered with blood.As the pride was still following it behind Simon guests told him to drive away as they could not stand seeing the poor lioness being subjected to more pains.later they came across cubs playing under the close supervision of their mothers .It was sweet to watch as they play.
When a lion is injured and it’s alone like this one its chances of survival are reduced tremendously as it cannot hunt properly leading to its death due to hunger.

Lion have a hard time to kill a buffalo. This is because they defend themselves as a block, making it impossible for the lion to penetrate the Herd. A number of times rangers have come across wounded Lion as a result of their confrontation with the Buffalo.
Simon on early morning game drive with his Guests came across a buffalo herd chasing a pride of lion. It was a big drama as they had to flee for their lives. The cubs were not spared either. This surprised Simon and his guests and wondered who really are the true kings of the jungle, when in fact those known to be are almost becoming a kill. Lion is known to kill mostly solitary Bull buffalo which has been chased away from the herd.It will call for more than one lion to bring down a Bull Buffalo.

Lion always have a problem bringing up their cubs as they are venerable to hyenas and leopards. Elephants and Buffalos will not spare them either. This makes the lioness very nervous, prompting it to move them from one den to the other in search of a thicker bush.
As Simon was doing his full day game drive came across a lioness with its cub on the month moving it to a better place. After it realized it was being watched turned direction to confuse Simon and his guest not to know where the rest of the cubs were.

Leopards are solitary cats which will always fight each other to maintain territories. Unfortunately what they believe is their territory happens to be also lion’s, this makes leopard’s enemy to lions. Lions are known to injure leopards or even kill them on confrontation. This might have been the case with the leopard Simon saw with his guests as they were heading to the airstrip. The wound was still fresh and itchy, forcing the leopard to leak it every now and then.
Northern Serengeti has many herds of Elephants. Elephants do not have territories or boundaries, they always move the way they like. Sometimes they do go to the nearby village which is around 20km away from the camp for Pumpkins, Cassava, Millet etc. which they like so much. This does prompt the Tanzanian park Authorities to chase them back to the park; as a result the Elephants get furious for being denied what they think is their favorite meal. This was the case today as our Rangers were dropping the Guests to the Airstrip, when they were made to wait for fifteen minutes after Elephants blocked the road. At one point the matriarch tried to charge on them.
