Last June we saw the lions in their encampment after their 1pm feeding. There were
still lots of people taking photos from cars and blocking the roads. We were entertained
by a male from one group attempting to eat from the carcass that another group was
enjoying. Fur flew for a few seconds. On this visit we found that the lions would
be fed the next day and were running wild in the lion encampment. It’s a large area
and we would have to drive around to find them. We were game to try but had so little
time left before lock-
I hadn’t noticed the hippo pond while having a snack at the kiosk last year, but this time we enjoyed watching at least three small hippo emerging and submerging in the company of some Egyptian geese and black ducks. We wanted to see some hippo in their natural environment but a storm was threatening. We decided to brave the elements because we thought we had just enough time to go and find the hippo pools on the eco trail just outside the reserve. We parked in the parking area inside the main gate and crossed the public road on foot in search of wild animals. Crossing that road on foot felt like the most dangerous part of the whole trip.
Wide grassy paths headed off between large enclosures bounded by cables and electric fences. This was a sure sign of dangerous animals. I turned to check on my husband and elder grandson and realized that a lioness was standing less than a metre away watching us from behind some bushes. A few steps behind her stood a magnificent male with a freshly scratched face. In the background there was a white lioness watching us from a vantage point. This was clearly their territory and I felt like an object of their speculation! They were in easy reach through the wire fence but a camera or hand wouldn’t have lasted long!
Conscious of the thunder, we moved briskly on, seeing fence signs for a bat-
The experience didn’t end there. As we drove away from the Rhino and Lion Reserve
entrance we saw several more camps of lion next to the main road. Clearly, the white
lion is well at home in the Cradle of Humankind. Our kids’ safari was a great experience
and one we shall definitely re-
