. This is now a frequent occurrence in the northern parts of the Serengeti as a result of the numerous wildebeests that die on the plains. Vultures would be seen fighting each other so as to get to the best feeding positions on a carcass, they kick and bite each other and chase the weak ones away. They see a carcass from a distance then descend on it one by one. Theirs is a free meal as they do not hunt but wait till they come across a dead animal.

Watching out for zebras.
Most of the time animals grazing and browsing together would rely on each other for vigilance against predation. We found this happening amongst a small group of zebras which refused to leave the company of Giraffes that were feeding on the edge of some bushlands. When the herd of giraffes moved, they also moved alongside them, being dwarfed by these tall animals.

Cheetah on break.
On an afternoon game drive, ranger kokan and his guests found a male cheetah by himself on a small tree cover in the middle of some grasslands closer to the sand river. He had taken break over feeding on a meal of a young wildebeest and was now on a hunt for a shade which unfortunately was not available in plentiful in the vast grasslands.

These mega-herbivores came visiting the camp again as they have always done in the previous days. This is now a normal occurrence in the camp. This time it was the females with calves of various ages that walked through the camp in the morning hours. They were not in a hurry to leave and the guests in the camp had a good view of these animals closer to their tents. one female gently pushed her calf forward with her trunk so as to keep it in view.

We are used to seeing elephants near the camp, but this day it was the turn for the buffaloes which were close by in a large group. They got attracted to some green pastures around the camp.The group was a breeding herd which consisted mainly of younger bulls, females and young. At night we herd them making some noise as if fighting off some predators but in the morning they concentrated on grazing but became very alert as we approached.
