The Food Chain

As sick as this probably sounds, unfortunately we never saw a kill on our safari. Most killing takes place at night, and besides following the hyena on foot, we didn't do any late night game drives (I've actually never heard of anyone doing late night game drives).

However, we did see a few fresh kills. Here's a few lions devouring a buffalo:


Here's a leopard....

...guarding the impala that it killed and placed up in a tree:

We actually came back to this kill later in the day to find that it had disappeared. Another bigger leopard had come and taken the impala. We found that leopard who began to growl at us...which was our signal to get the heck out of there.
