Teaser from Kafue

Jump to last reply

I'm at Lusaka airport awaiting transfer to Mfue. Just completed 7 days in northern Kafue NP. It was brilliant. Saw Lions every day. The first 6 days each featured "new" Lions, while days 6 and 7 saw "repeat" Lions. In all, 20 separate individuals. Among them the Busanga Pride -- 2 large males, 4 females, and a cub. These Lions climb trees!

Also featured were several Leopards. We watched a Leopardess attempt to hunt Puku (unsuccessfully). Later, we found her at night, drinking from a stream. With a cub! When done, she picked him up in her mouth and carried him back to the den which was nearby. Wow! This cub was estimated by our guide to be ~3 weeks old, so we were undoubtedly the first humans to witness it.

Kafue really delivered (Wild Dogs also seen but, sadly, no Cheetah).

Next stop, the Luangwa valley (N&S) for 11 days. Should be great! Will not have another chance at internet until returning home on Nov 1, so cannot reply to any questions until then.

Cheers,
rickmck
