Satara Summer – Day 3 (2019/12/07)

Out Satara’s gates at 04:30 this morning, we didn’t have to wait too long before finding a mating pair of lions right in the road. Our afternoon drive didn’t yield the same results, mostly due to a very welcome drizzle setting in. We were however welcomed back to camp by Satara’s habituated African Wild Cat.

    Lovely sightings! Great to see the wild cat. We didn’t see it at Satara but a few years ago there was one at Skukuza camp. In 2017 I came face to face with one at Tsendze camp just outside the ablution block, but this year did not see it.

    We have also enjoyed the presence of (possibly the same one) a wild cat near our camp at Satara. It tolerates company from a distance, seeks shade under vehicles, yet I have never seen it trying to filch food or ingratiate with human company.

    The male lion is such a handsome animal. These big cats have so much power behind the serene expression and innocence of their eyes. Great post, D. 🙂
