Killing Zone!

Good morning everyone… The last five days the southern pride made four kills, two springbok, a gemsbok and this morning a blue wildebeest! They are turning out to be formidable hunters. The pride consists out of three females and two young males. Because lionesses hunt in open spaces where they are easily seen by their prey, especially in the Kalahari, cooperative hunting increases the likelihood of a successful hunt.

Enjoy and see you tomorrow!

  2. Gee Hannes, that is a beautiful portrait. Nice to have the blood of a kill on his mane too.

    I can relate to your chill, we had similar temps in The Richtersveld a few weeks ago. I don’t think it got as low as -12 though, that is ‘brass monkey’ temperatures….!

    Keep the pic’s coming, I am really enjoying your Blog.

    Keep warm
    Cheers

  3. Mal oor die een! Kom nou net self van die Kalahari en is nogsteeds aan’t ontdooi! Nie gedink ‘n tent kan so nat raak binne nie. Sal so ‘n paar foties op Facebook post. “n paar gelukkige foto oomblikke gehad, maar geen aksie shots soos hierdie nie!
