Next edition

The impala was drinking onthe other side of the waterhole
and as rushed through the water she slipped and fell

Image

The lioness followed her She is just behind the impala running away in front


Image


Image
She went back into the water and that was that

Image
Took some more pics of both animals in the water and this was the conclussion.
Image

As I said in my first mail This took about 3 minutes from the time the lioness appeared out of the bush until she went back into the bush with her meal.
Right time right place as always applies

Hi

Don't have a map with me at the moement will check tonight and confirm, but close to BnD coming from Byamiti weir. We had seen nothing apart from a couple of ellies and impala at the weir. When we arrived at this waterhole there were lots of cars. Aparently someone had spotted the lioness eralier. (Supposed to have some cubs around - on some of the photos you can see her swolen teats) We were parked in and had to wait. Later only a few cars left. I was fooling around with my camera taking shots of the impala when all of this ocurred. Wouldn't have had time to reach for a camera.
