Kalahari Plains guide TK reports on a thrilling lion sighting, right in front of camp…
Initially I was just capturing images of the wild dog pack at Kalahari Plains running away from the young male lion from the Bushman Pride (named for the Bushman Hut at Kalahari Plains where a female had her cubs a couple of years ago). We were watching him this morning as he was moving around, sniffing out the the Plains Pride females.
The Bushman male was then spotted by the Owens Boy, Shortwheelbase, and a chase ensued. Initially Shortwheelbase was chasing the Bushman boy, but moments later the tables turned and the old boy was suddenly being chased by the younger, stronger Bushman Pride male.
Regular followers might remember the Owens Boys chasing Mr Lekhubu, the legendary dominant male of the Plains Pride, from the area in February 2015, and we are wondering if we are about to see another power shift again soon.
