Nothing beats the excitement of coming across a pride of lions on a night drive. Imagine then the exhilaration of finding a pride of lions feeing on a giraffe carcass as happened on the 10th of October 2014. Giraffe are very vigilant and it is very difficult for lions to get within striking distance. When they do, the usual strategy is to chase them and hope they loose their footing on slippery ground or stumble over rocks or bushes. Otherwise they try and trip them by clipping the hind legs.
