Almost every night, there occurs some roaring from the nearby kopjes (rocky outcrops) from some resident pride which consist of two males in their prime and four lionesses with two cubs of about one year of age. This pride would patrol the areas around the camp in the evenings and early hours of the day, thereafter retreat into the nearby kopjes to relax and sleep during the strong heat of the day where it is not easy to see them as they would be in the shady spots enjoying a good view.On this particular day, nearly all the camp rangers with their guests had a good view of one of the pride male as he looked down from the top of the Kopjes.

In almost every game drive, sightings of Impalas besides other game is the norm as was the case today of Ranger Godson and his guests on a full day game drive.
These antelopes are the most comonly seen species in the Serengeti plains and open bushlands.The males are elegant with their curved horns while the females do not posess any horns. They occur in mainly two groups, the bachelor herds or "boys only team" or a group of a single dominant male with several females as his harem. The dominant male ensures that he keeps the other males away from his harem. He normally has a very exhausting job and does not keep the harem for long due to constant competition.

Many times on our game drives we come upon warthogs grazing in the open grasslands or on the edges of bushlands and many times people overlook them. But warthogs play a vital role in the wild as many predators rely on them for food source. Today, we came across a group of warthogs which the guests described as ''beautifully ugly'' because they thought that they looked so prehistoric and funny with their little tusks sticking out on both sides of their flat snouts.

Ranger deus and his guests were on a game drive today when they came across a lonely male cheetah that was on a termite mound relaxing and enjoying a good view of the serengeti grasslands.On many occassions, cheetahs would use the termite mounds as vantage points to look around for their prey, especially where the grass is tall, thereafter they would walk away slowly at first towards their target and then bursting into high speed when closer.

On an early morning game drive, we were out looking for cats when from some distance we saw some few vultures on the ground, next to them were some five jackals that were feeding on something which we could not see. When we drove closer, we found that they were actually feeding on a male Thomson gazelle. With their thin mouths, they were biting off little bits of meat from the carcass in a very fast and timid manner. The few vultures around were trying to come in to take their share but each time the jackals would quickly leave the meal and chase them off. From our observation we thought that the kill was made by a cheetah because the rear side of it and the ribs had long been eaten (cheetah's way of eating) also, it is not easy for Jackals to kill a mature male Tommy as they are very fast. As we drove away, after about ten minutes of watching, the Jackals had started to leave and more vultures flew in from all directions.
