A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GAME RANGER LUKE STREET

A WEEK OF DRAMA– 12th July 2019
Welcome back to another instalment of a “Week in Pictures” at Tanda Tula Safari Camp. While we have had some heart ache over the last week due to the unfortunate loss of one of the Zebenine lionesses during an altercation with the Mayambula Pride (last weeks blog post), the Timbavati continues to provide incredible game viewing! The fantastic rains that summer brought have set the Greater Kruger on track for a good winter with the grass, still thick and full on nutrients. The trees are still holding massive amounts of foliage and those that aren’t have an ample bed of nutrients right beneath them which means the wildlife sightings have been superb!

Whilst we thought their presence in the area during the previous reporting period was good, this week was exceptional. The pride set up base in the central region of our concession and enjoyed no fewer than four kills during the course of the week. It all started last week when all sixteen members (including the two Mbiri males) were found feasting on a large kudu bull only 2kms from Tanda Tula Safari Camp. That afternoon Civilized headed out a little earlier in the afternoon to go and spend time with the pride. As it was early in the afternoon and they all had full bellies, he wasn’t expecting much action - he was wrong. After some time with the lions the four lionesses suddenly got up and stared to the west before slinking off. It wasn’t more than a couple of minutes later that pandemonium erupted as the lionesses brought down an adult zebra about 100m from their kudu kill! Civ and his guests sat and watched in amazement at the power of these lioness as they subdued the 300kg mare.

Lions, lions in the glorious morning light. That is the way my guests and I started this week - could one ask for much more? We set out early one morning intent on finding the Mayambula pride who has taken a fairly permanent residence towards the east of Tanda Tula Safari Camp. We knew where they had been the day before, it was just a matter of finding their tracks and tracking them down.
