after a delicious breakfast me and my cousins wanted to go out for a drive but my parents stayed at the house to sleep and just relax. But we told them that Murphy's law would kick in and they would miss something incredible. They said it was ok.
so we went off and turned up towards olifants. we saw elephants and mostly the usual stuff.
we saw a guy stopped and he was looking at a bird so we were also interested in birds so we stopped. after a while he said "oh, by the way there is a lion about 6km down the road". so we were so excited to go see our first lions, he came with us to see them. when we arrived there there were about ten cars there. we stopped and looked and there was nothing there, we waited there for about 30 min and we watched rhinos and elephants walk past. we said the elephants wouldn't walk right to were the lions were (apparently) so we drove off after wasting our time.
so we turned off onto the timbavati road to go back to satara. on this road we literally saw NOTHING!!!!
so we turned on to the tar road and about five minutes later we realized the we turned towards orpen and not to satara so we said at the next T junction we would turn around.
we arrive at the next T junction and we saw there 4 cars stopped and we saw what they were looking at. LIONS!!
right next to the road.
there were 2 lions a male and a female.
they were alone. so i knew what this ment, they were mating. i remembered that on national geographic it said that lions mate approximately every 20-25 minutes so i told my cousins that we should just wait.
so that was exactly what we did.
(sorry about the out of focus, really bad camera i was using that time
) And yeh it was next to the road but a tree was just at the wrong place.
lioness starting the action
mating busy happening
After 2 hours we left them to have some privacy.
when we got home my parents were probably out on a drive because they weren't at the house.
we made ourselves some lunch and watched the rest of the Man U vs Man city game on tv. Man what a game. rooney goal
anyway stay tuned for the next drive!!! big surprise...
