Red Hartebeest drinking at Gharagab waterhole

by Marius

The Gharagab waterhole can be quiet so when something does come down to drink we get very excited! There were lions in the area so the Red Hartebeest took nearly an hour to approach the waterhole as he could most probably sense / smell the lions, who returned later that night to drink.

Is this waterhole spring fed? The antelope looks great, and from what you’re saying it’s apparently hard to spot. What interests me more is the place itself, and how it feels to be there. Did you watch the lions as they drank from the waterhole?
