The Best Job in the World

The past few days have been really exiting – so many different sightings of animals interacting with one another. Not too long ago, we had two male hippos battling it out in one of our dams, real serious fight – water splashing everywhere, blood coming from the hippos mouths, spit almost flying on our faces… A real show of muscle! But it was an amazing sighting! A few days after that, we had our newly released male cheetah chasing blue wildebeest around and jackals around in an open plains. However, the best sighting was about a day ago. Our pride of lions killed a female buffalo while in the background, there were three rhinos just having a drink of water and enjoying the show. It didn’t stop there – after that, our big male lion and his lioness came and stole the carcass from the pride and drove them away. And the very next day, we had a lovely interaction between our lion cubs and mother with some buffalo. I didn’t go on drive tonight, but I heard from the other rangers that there were several leopard sighting all over Kapama and all in the same drive. It’s been a really exciting week and looking forward to my next drive, to see what new adventures await us.
