Waiting by the river.
On a morning game-drive along the banks of the Mara river, we came upon a crocodile waiting in the river which is home to some of the biggest Nile crocodiles in the Serengeti. Many times we have found them floating with only their back showing, as was the case today, and that is the way they deceive and trap animals coming to drink water. The crocodiles of the mara river have over the years eaten thousands of wildebeests that cross their way in the waters. At the moment they are waiting for food to come to them again as from the months of June onwards when we expect the migration.

The one that roared in the night.
We heard the roaring of a lion during the night till the early hours of the morning, the sound was just next to the camp. In the morning we decided to look around for him. Just two minute's drive away from the camp we found him, at first in the open but later he moved next to a bush when the sun rose higher. When the guests saw him, they said “you are the one who disturbed our sleep, we’ve seen you at last’’ He was a young nomadic lion with some short blonde mane.

THE “GARDENERS” OF THE SAVANNAH.
Normally the giraffe’s height enables them to command an extensive view of the plains and the bushlands, their height also enables them to browse on the higher levels of the trees and bushes up to a certain level where they can no longer browse. It is for this reason that many of the trees of the Serengeti have got a browse-line at the bottom forming some umbrella shape. This has led to the giraffes being nicknamed the “gardeners of the savannah”. On this particular day we found a male giraffe standing in the shade next to a “Balanite” tree motionless as if in deep thoughts.

Very rarely would we get the chance to take pictures of warthogs from a closer range as they are prone to runing away each time we stop to view them. we came upon a family by a small water-hole in the middle of some grasslands and the guests finally had a good opportunity to take their pictures after several attempts as they had been held there by thirst. For awhile they looked suprised at us after they had drank some water before finally taking off into the bushes. They are some of the animals that guests enjoy seeing in the game drives owing to their funny facial appearance and their spectacular war of running with the tail held up like antenaes.

THE SILVER -BACKED JACKALS.
On an early morning game –drive, ranger Jaffery came upon some two silver-backed jackals on the road. Usually on wet days they would spent most of their time in the open grounds and especially if the grass is higher to avoid getting wet and also to have a good view of the surroundings. Having very small mouths and also being very much light-weight, they would go for smaller prey like hares and baby Thomson gazelles but would also scavenge on lion kill sites.
