It seemed like another Sunday. Well maybe for me it did and not the dogs this time.
The pack headed out early following vehicle tracks and animal paths on their way south. They seemed like a determined bunch this morning. They had purpose. Initially the pups led the way, but then dad took over when things got real.
Once they got into the Acacia woodlands things looked good and soon there were impala bomb-shelling all over the place, many with their own dog tagging them. But yet again it was Jiggy who was successful. It was an adult female impala, which fed the pack well.
With all the pans in the area I was sure they’d just lie up there, but again Puzzles led them a long way north into the mopanie woodland to another pan. She’s done this several times when they’ve hunted successfully in this area. Why move all that way? Puzzling?
And then again this afternoon they headed off all the way south back to the same area? But with full tummies they were hardly keen on hunting and I left them after dark resting.
While they rested through the middle of the day I went flying hoping to find the lions but the conditions up there being rather bumpy, soon had me back with my feet on the ground as my tummy was doing flick flacks!
And instead I went off horse riding across Banyini plains. I love being out there on horseback. Just has a different feel to it and the impala, zebra, giraffe and wildebeest just watched as we moved by. We didn’t see any lions, which I suppose was a good thing. I always keep that one in stall for next time.
