Quick June trip report with photos - Mara Porini and Lion Porini

Interesting that they would say a hyena killed the cub just because they saw hyena eating the remains, hardly compelling evidence to blame the poor hyena. Wonder if not more likely to be killed by lion or leopard then eaten by hyena.

Watched a documentary taken in Kalahari of a cheetah mum raising 6 cubs to adulthood, an amazing feat anywhere for a cheetah.

I think the colour of clothing makes no difference at all to the animals, although people do go on about it. Just look at mother nature in the bush!

So looking forward to returning at the end of September, this time at a different rehab centre and then 8 nights in Durban, which in itself is something very novel for me!

Kind regards

Pretty sure the cheetah and cubs photo was taken near Kichecbe Bush camp in Olare Orok in 2010
