Antelope Park, Zimbabwe, February 2, 2016
Today was a wonderful, relaxing day spent reading, listening to the roar of lions and .... that's about it until 6 pm when I went on a night encounter with lions. The hope was to see a kill!
We set off in an open air jeep wth three, twenty-eight month old females following-
They doddled, yawned, played and sniffed, in spite of the fact we saw zebra, wildebeest, antelope and a jackal. They didn't seem too interested, even though they hadn't eaten for 3 days. Every once in awhile, one would perk up her ears and look towards 'supper' but that was about it-
Then, as soon as it got dark, they crouched down low and disappeared. We drove around for a few minutes and came across-
They had killed a wildebeest and were having a feast. They started with the udder area because it's the softest. One also went after the neck-
They were ripping out intestines: it got quite smelly but they didn't seem to mind-
