Elephant chasing a lioness at Pondoro Game Lodge

Great morning safari drive on the 16th of February 2014. The young elephant bull was determent to have a drink in peace at a pool of rain water captured by the rocks. The presence of the lioness flared his temper. The lioness was actually hiding some tiny little cubs just behind the big slap of rocks behind her fueling her determination to stand her ground. Small cubs are often hidden in unaccessible places to protect them from other predators or elephants who will kill them if given any chance. A rocky outcrop like this is ideal as it provides plenty of small caves and crevices to hide in if threatened.
