Another great day in Olare Motorogi conservancy
March 2017 | Isabelle Chappat
Starting yet another great day in OMC, we leave camp shortly before sunrise with Jackson and Philip, who know exactly where and how to position the vehicle for us to catch these amazing silhouettes on the hill.
A few minutes later, we come across Mohican, lying lazily in the grass and calling his lady. We can feel the vibrations caused by his roaring ...
After looking for Fig, the beautiful leopardess, we finally come across her son, Olare, lying in the shade and definitely not paying any attention !
Zebras are everywhere, we were lucky to see this adorable baby zebra sunbathing, with mum not very far.
Of course, a day in the wild also goes with some tougher sightings, such as this newborn zebra, abandoned by its mother, certainly a primipara frightened by the amniotic sac. We feel heartbroken to leave it there all alone but, as Jackson reminds us, that's nature.
And Fig's breakfast the next morning ...
Finally, we cheer up when our incredible guides find Tito the leopardess, back from a hunt, with her two cubs. We spent a very long time watching them hugging, rolling in the grass, cuddling.
A game drive of course can't be complete without a sundowner, so ... maisha marefu !
(to be continued ... next year !)
