Lions were spotted just across camp! We followed the tracks and found five lions after one hour of walking. What a great experience! 

The lion cubs were playing around but at the same time also very alert. The female started growling at us, swishing her tail. Eventually they all started growling at us. We had an awesome sighting but had to back out because of the alertness, growls and warning signs. We continued the walk away from them. 

And then, to top it all, we also saw a bat eared fox

Not to mention the many kudu and impala in the riverbed and the vulturesin the sky.
