Christmas morning started off with a bang as we got Big Boy, the territorial male lion, drinking at Nyari dam. We followed him and found the whole pride lying close by. Thereafter we followed some more lions while they were hunting wildebeest, but without any success.

During the afternoon drive we saw 2 white rhino bulls and Rul found a buffalo bull which he surprised on foot. I do not know who got the biggest fright. Rul, the buffalo or the guests on the vehicle as the buffalo came charging past his car? I then followed the lions as they went hunting and we were lucky enough to saw them hunt and kill a kudu cow. Mindblowing stuff!!!

The highlight during this morning’s drive was a cheetah mother and cub. Sometimes this job can look so easy!
