A Zebra herd appears shiny and very bright, especially when the day is very sunny. When they start to run they create confusion to predators by mingling. They usually behave intentionally that way so as to confuse the predators. Their coloration and gregariousness camouflages them confusing their predators even further and makes them inaccessible. This was the case today when the lioness ambushed them with no success.

Hyenas are known to be coward scavengers. This is now being proved wrong by the Hyena’s of the Lamai Plains which have taken advantage of the water holes to net the Topis as they come to drink water, making them become successful good hunters. They are hunting as solitary and in concert. Since they do not know how to peacefully kill, they end up eating the topi while still alive, instigating severe pains.Topi would be seen Groaning in pains as hyenas tear it into pieces with their strong jaws leaving only blood on the ground as each Hyena run for cover with a piece on the mouth. Its painful to watch!!!!.but this is nature.

Deus came across two Male lions resting under the shade of the balanite tree; they both had very dark Mane which drew the attention of the guests who wanted to know the cause. Lion dark Mane is associated with genetic state of maturity and testosterone production. Female lion consider male with dark mane as strong, energetic, and handsome and with high reproduction success.

On the lamai plains, Godson and his guests spotted the Mother cheetah with her four full grown up cubs. She has been remarkably over protective to her cubs to reach this age with this number. Cheetah has high mortality rate and one reason is the competition among the cats which leads to even killing each other’s cubs. Among the cats family cheetah is the least defensive, leaving most of its kill to scavengers.Today the mother just fed her cubs well with the entire kill.

When the Elephant bulls are on Musth they become very temperamental and can easily charge.
This was the case today with our usual bull elephant which comes to the camp occasionally to graze on the creeping plants found in abundance around here. The bull elephant was seen moving between the tents and at one time it went very close to the guests who were seated outside their tents deck. looked at them and then changed the direction towards the Restaurant. Later it blocked the pathway leading to the restaurant and continued grazing ignoring our presence as we were escorting the guests to their tents after their lunch. We decided to use the vehicle, but this again could not deter it .The vehicle had to avoid the pathway and went through the grass but the elephant decided to follow the vehicle with a motive of charging. This was very unusual with this Bull but being on musth it was understandable.
