Kenya Day 3 morning

KEN0070

This morning’s ride was possibly the best yet in terms of variety. We saw cheetahs, hyenas and lions all battling over a kill bye cheetahs.

First though we saw some zebras.

KEN0071

Then a group of hyenas.

KEN0072

The buffaloes are too big to be worried by the hyenas.

KEN0073

And these two buffaloes were too busy PDAing to notice the hyenas. Incidentally they’re both boys!

KEN0074

The hyenas found some hippo skin, left over from a hippo killed by a lion.

KEN0075

A group of banded mongooses.

KEN0076

This was an amazing sight. An elephant standing on hand legs only, reaching into a tree. It looks like he is trying to climb the tree!

KEN0077

A couple of young bucks fighting.

KEN0078

A zebra crossing.

KEN0079

The normal pride of lions.

KEN0080

We saw the pair of cheetahs again.

KEN0081

And standing up.

KEN0082

A wandering giraffe.

KEN0083

A couple of crocodiles down at the river.

KEN0084

The river, which is full of hippos and crocodiles.

KEN0085

Having a morning coffee with the crocodiles behind me.

KEN0086

A hyena lying in a pool. The mud suffocates the ticks.

KEN0087

Then we saw the cheetahs hunting prey.

KEN0088

And they caught a warthog.

KEN0089

But then the hyenas turned up wanting to have it, even though the cheetahs caught it.

KEN0090

Sadly the socialist hyenas won, and took it off the productive cheetahs

KEN0091

But then a lion turned up and decided it was his, and charged the hyenas – which barely escaped.

KEN0092

The lion then came towards the cheetahs and charged them. He was hungry and would have happily eaten cheetah instead. Luckily for them, they managed to just out-run the lion, who then sat down  and glared at them.
