The arrival of the great migration into the mara brings alot of changes into pachyderm habitats. The noise made by the rutting ungulate and the young ones separated from the cows creates disturbance to the thick skinned mammals. This rhino was moving away from a herd of wildbeest that was pushing its way towards Talek junction from the main road. The rhino moved towards the hills an area not preffered by the wildbeest as there is less water.
Daniel told the guests that the rhino population of late was increase as security measures have been put in place to protect not only the rhino but all wildlife in the country.

After letting the young one drag the food by a the bushes mother cheetah went into one of the bushes and waited to recover from the terrefic speed. The young punky one was quick to open the tommy from behind and started feeding. After about half an hour the mother cheetah came for her round to fill. she continued and any moment she raised her head high to check any intruder she looked even more beatiful with the red lips and whiskers.
Daniel informed the guests that cheetahs never return to their meal once they are done and they feed quickly because other biggger predators steal from them easily.

Before full day game drive Daniels' guest asked the chances of seeing lions cub. Daniel informed them that the only pride nearby with cub is the one near sand river kopjes. The journey started to the sand and on arrival the pride was not there. They opted to try leopard and cheetah country. The leopard search rewarded yes, but was not as exiting enough like the cheetah hunting down the thompson gazzelle.
They spotted it and was thrilling watch it stalk, crawl at some point and the chase from the start until it knocked it down. The young one helped the mother drag it into the nearby bushes before starting to feed.

August is one of the dry months in the Mara but we have received a good amount of rainfall over the last three days.
Early this morning Peter, Japheth and their guests were headed down to Sand river and were hoping to see if the rain had attracted more gnus and sure enough they saw thousands along the river bank. As they were driving around some rocky outcrop they saw a lioness sitting on-top of the the rock and they knew she belonged to the Sand river pride. As they drove to the other side of the rock the rest of the pride was peacefully busking. To everyones suprise six cubs were sitted next to one of the lactating lionesses. The two youngest cubs caught everybodys attention because they kept playing with each other while other pride members were relaxing.
