Cheetah on the lookout.
Where the grass is tall and visibility is poor, the cheetahs would take advantage of the termite mounds as points to look around for either prey or fellow predator. Thereafter, if it is a prey they have spotted, they would begin to move towards it with the aim of bringing it down. If it is a fellow predator like a lion, they would work towards avoiding it. Currently in the Serengeti, the best places to look out for the cats is on the elevated spots like the termite mounds and the rocky outcrops

Leopard strolling in the grasslands.
Most of the times when the largest spotted cat in Africa is seen in the wild, it is usually on the trees, but they are also very good at doing their activities on the ground. They would follow prey over short distances before pouncing on them, thereafter their prey would be stored up on the trees for safe- eating, away from other predators. Today, our ranger Deus and his guests spotted a big female leopard walking on the vast Serengeti grasslands which at the moment are quite tall in various places due to the recent heavy rains. It was not shy at all and they followed her for a little while before it disappeared onto some rocky outcrops.

Lamai pride in the shade
Ranger Deus and his guests found a group of lions in the shade in the middle of the lamai plains.These lions had already had their breakfast of a zebra nearby which they had killed in the night and were so relaxed. They chose a strategic place by the water-hole where they could still lay ambush on some animals coming to quench their thirst. They remained in the same position the whole day before eventually shifting to the other parts of their territory. when it became cooler.

Lion resting near Zebras.
It does not always occur that zebras would be a bit closer to where the lions are resting but they would do this when they know that the kings are not bothered with them. This would happen when the kings are contented after a heavy meal. This lion was on this kind of state when ranger Kokan and his guests found him resting in the shade of an acacia tree. Once the prey is aware that the predators are not bothered, they will not move far but graze while keeping watch

Hippo on its trail.
On an early morning game drive, ranger Jaffery came upon a male hippo that had been forced out of water by its rival. It had ventured into a foreign territory and did not show submissiveness towards the dominant male of the pool. The territorial male opened its mouth and showed his formidable teeth while approaching him, but he turned back and ran out of the water with the territorial male in hot pursuit. The territorial male decided to keep guard for a while onto the trail leading to his pool so that the intruder didn’t come back.
