Photographer Luca except Luca with Lions!

As I woke up this morning there was a herd of impala and a troop
of baboons next to my tent. Yesterday I went on a game drive, I saw a
lot of Zebra, giraffe and elephant, we also saw a Jackel and it's cubs. It
was so sunny I found it hard to take pictures but when we were half
way to main camp it was easier to see and there was a pride of 9 lions.
They were just waking up to go hunting so they were standing and
walking and yawning. They don't usually do this in the day. One
walked right next to the Land Cruiser, Granny was scared!
After we saw the lions we drove
along way from them .We were going
for a sundowner you get out the car,
have a drink and watch the sunset. We
knew the lions would be hunting we did
not want to be "starters"!!
On our return back to camp it was
dark so we had to use the spotlight, we saw some Eland they are huge
about 1 tonne, but they are still scared of people.

We arrived back for dinner and 2 scorpions joined us and we
had to rescue a preying mantis from the candle flames!
Have you ever had such an exciting day?
