Taking a breather,eating so much takes time.

Whilst taking a slow relaxing drive along the S100 near Satara camp which is well known for it's big cat sightings, we were lucky enough to come across this lion kill. The zebra had no chance with the 5 hungry lion's. The claw marks can clearly be seen on the zebra's hide - imagine our skin would stand no chance.

It would have been both a sight of wow and sadness. Sadness cause you have witnessed taking away an innocent life and wow obviously cause of who the king of the jungle keeps up with food chain and shows off on why he is called so.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information.
