The short rains have finally showed up making the lush mara plains look nice and green with lots of beautiful flowers popping up.
Ferdinand and his guests were on a chilly half-day game drive and found some of the roads to be difficult to drive on due to the heavy rains. Lucky enough as they were driving around they came across a pride of five lions feeding on a wildebeest carcass. As they watched them feed they noticed that there was nothing much left but the lions continued feeding.
Lions live in big prides and need to kill quite often so that they can be well fed.

Japeth and his guests came across two lionesses feeding on a wildebeest carcass in the middle of a grassy plain as they were driving towards mara river. Japeth and his guests took time and watched them feed and after having their fill one of lioness started dragging the remaining carcass to some near-by bushes but it seemed too heavy for her cause she kept putting it down after a short distance.
Lions tend to hide their prey under thickets so as to avoid attracting unwanted attention from hyenas and vultures.

Lioness can have upto four cubs after a gestation period of close to 100 days. Ranger Peter and his guests came across a lioness and two three month old cubs with a fresh wildebeest carcass. Peter's guests found it very interesting to see the mother make a small opening on the wildebeest carcass so that the cubs could feed.

Ranger John and his three guests were having a nice game drive seeing lots of different animals all over the mara plains. As they were driving along Talek river John spotted a wildebeest carcass hidden under some croton bushes. He went closer to investigate who had made the kill and to everyones suprise it was a huge male Leopard enjoying some wildebeest stake! The Leopard was not shy at all and they watched him for over 30 minutes before moving on.
Male Leopards can weigh upto 65kgs and can large prey like wildebeest, topi and hartebeest but prefer smaller prey so that they can drag them up the tree.

Ferdinand and his four guests started their full-day game drive early and were hoping to get down to Mara river. Ferdinand took a nice game route through the Burrungat and Meta plains and later started driving along 'Ol keju Rongai' stream where they saw thousands of wildebeest and zebra. As they were driving along the stream they noticed some wildebeest jumping into the water and some of the young seemed to be having alot of fun.
