When the temperature is low rhinos will move out of the forest to the plains for a sun bask or wallow on the mud holes.When it becomes too hot will go back to the forest for a shade and also for nutritious leaves to eat. This forces the rangers to make sure they are on the rhino spot before it gets too hot. The rhino spotted today looked relaxed as it moved slowly within the plains close to Sand river forest, which was very unusual as most of the time they are fearful and will start to run for a cover immediately it spots a vehicle.

Cheetah is perfectly adapted for hunting in the grasslands .That’s why you will find cheetah mostly along the grasslands. Being so quick they are able to capture prey that no other animals are able to catch. Cheetahs are sprinters, not long-distance runners. They are easily tired after running for a short moment .They are known to run up to 70 mph. Most of the Antelopes especially Gazelles which is their favorite prey will never run straight when being chased by cheetah as they know they will never match it and instead they run in a zigzag way to confuse the cheetah, which easily gets tired.
As Deus was on his game drive along Bologoja area came across a cheetah with its grownup Cubs hunting Gazelles.

A Big herd of Elephants was spotted near the camp accompanied by their Young ones. While walking Elephants usually keep their young ones in the middle to protect them from any Danger. The young Elephants were surrounded by their Mothers, cousins, sisters, brothers and their Grandmother who is usually their best Teacher. Baby Elephants are very playful and innocent in the way they walk and do things especially trying to imitate others. As we approached them with the vehicle the matriarch was on us. We had to retrieve back.

We spotted the Solitary Bull buffalo while at the woodland near the Mara River. It stopped eating immediately it saw us and started to advance towards us for myopic curiosity then stopped. Guest were amazed on how sharp it was. Solitary buffaloes are old bulls which usually group together and are mostly short tempered and easily attack without provocation. The guest decided to call them the retired army generals.

The Mother cheetah with her four cubs were spotted by Deus within the Lamai plain. The Mother Cheetah looked restless most of the time as she could be seen standing on the termite mounds from time to time which is a good sign that she is watching for her cubs predators and secondly food for her Cubs especially now that she has more stomachs to feed.
Cheetahs have good eyesight and are blessed with speed making them the most formidable hunters. Cubs can stay with their mother up to over one and a half years before parting ways.
