Leopard vs. lion

Guests at Jaci‘s Lodges in Madikwe Game Reserve were really fortunate when they were out on a game drive in early March. Their ranger saw a leopard that had a kill, a young zebra, up in a tree. That in itself is an amazing thing to see.

But there was more to come! A male lion had tracked the kill to the tree and managed to jump up and climb the tree to steal the kill, while the leopard balanced in the top of the tree.

There you are, that‘s what you can experience on a normal game drive in South Africa 🙂

That’s nature!

We’ve been quiet for far too long, but it’s that time of the year when we have so much to sort out with all our tours over the Christmas holidays. We’re sorry about that, we will return when things have settled down a bit and we’ll leave you with this little movie clip:

Have a lovely weekend! 😉

Brave little elephant

Imagine seeing this!

A young elephant in Zambia somehow became separated from his herd and then a flock of 14 female lions attacked the helpless animal. Clearly outnumbered, the brave little elephant managed fend off the attack even though he had no less than three lionesses on his back at one point!
