Description: We first saw this lion from a distance as it walked across the open plain. we could see it was heading for the Tamboti turnoff and we went down the road to get a better look. the reward was watching this magnificent creature scent-marking its territory,walking down the road and frighting the local impala and wildebeest. looking into those eyes was a whole new experience for me.

Description: just too beautiful not to share. I saw this pride the first time about 6-8 month ago. The cubs where still very small at that time and rangers told me that the two sub-adult males only recently took over this pride. Now the pride has 23 mouth to feed. It seems they specialized themselves to hunt Giraffe, and they seem resident arrount Namutoni

Description: We were sitting in the hide on our last night in Nossob, just the two of us, when out of the dark materialised this lioness and her cub. Neither of us had cameras which work in low light, so we just watched in awe. They drank for a full 10 minutes! Then wandered off to lie under the tree next to the hide. This photo was taken by the ©Nossob webcam, and you can see the other photos here. I hope Sanparks don't mind me posting this photo here.

Description: The same two chaps (http://www.ispot.org.za/node/286080) make it to the waterhole an hour later. They have the most awesome, relentless, ground-eating gentle stride. The one lion was a tad injured. Once the other dude had drunk his fill, he lay down in the road and waited for his buddy. When buddy was sated, the boys greeted each other affectionately and strode off over the next hill. One forgets just how enormous these beasts are! Breathtaking!

Description: Livestock shepherd reported three sheep missing that was probably killed. About a month ago the shepherd close to this location saw a female with a cub. About 15km to the north close to Armanshoek I followed another track last week. The track led to the killing spot of a goat belonging to another shepherd living at Armanshoek. Wonder if this is the same one?

Description: A night to be remembered: lightening storm, rain, no stars for guidance, spiders every where, three individual leopard sightings. The first one (pictured) we worked so hard for - she kept eluding us, but after an hour, we did find her and I was able to snap some truly horrible photos, simply proof that I had spotted one. On the way back, down a wide open 4x4 track, a different leopard crossed our path… this after getting lost in the thick bush and having to push the landie off of a downed tree. We were in disbelief… how could this sighting be so easy after the effort we put into the first?
