Success in seeing what we wanted..

2 July 2009 By Wesley Cragg

After having a fairly peaceful drive yesterday afternoon and easing my guests into their stay at Riverbend for six nights, we decided to go looking for lions and elephants this morning. About half an hour into the drive we were in luck! Neither elephant nor lion, but seven bat eared foxes sitting in the middle of the road soaking up the morning sun! What an incredible sighting!! Only after a few minutes did they decide to take off into the thicket, giving us a fantastic oppurtunity to view them and their behaviour and not so long after that, we once again ran into some luck and bumped into a huge male lion that appeared out of the thicket to our right and crossed the road about fifty meters ahead of us. He moved a further fifty meters off the road and lay down completely flat cat!! We sat with him for about an hour before moving on. A successful drive even without elephants..I'll save that for tonight. Have a good evening all..
