Danie wrote:Update on lions' buffalo kill on Satara webcam:
The lions were more bold than I thought! They moved closer to the spectators at the fence, back to their kill and out of view from the webcam. You will see spectators at the fence watching the lions at their kill - I was wrong there; the lions HAVE returned even with the spectators so close to them! I thought the spectators would have scared them off - but after dark, a lion's behaviour is changing, that is proof now!....


Just in: Confirmation from my colleagues at Satara that the lions are NOT at the kill . They are indeed scared of all the human activity at the fence. Apologies on previous update that i assumed they are at the kill. :redface:

I spotted one of the younger males between the webcam and the kill - but not at the kill..in the grass between the kill and the webcam. This means that he is still scared of going closer (to the kill). Perhaps somebody captured him as I had the cam on him (black in white night mode) a few minutes ago.

Keep your eyes on Satara Webcam!

I'm curious to know what is happening at Satara Camp. Looks like a big party from the webcams.

:wink: You caught me out! :D ! Yes, it was me! I fine-tuned the wide angle position of one of the angles a bit - it was a bit off.... I had to switch the touring off during this reset! Well spotted Vinkie! :thumbs_up:
