The animals we encountered were fantastic, and we were rewarded with sightings at all of the camps. One of the most exciting yet bittersweet experiences we had was during the very first game drive when we saw a pair of lionesses take down a kudu. Seeing lions is unusual, but seeing them kill is so rare our guides were even taking photos! We saw numerous other animals, including elephants, African buffalo, hippopotamus, giraffes, impala, baboons, puku, black-backed jackals and even a leopard and a sable antelope. In addition, we found ourselves photographing many birds, including African fish eagles and both red and yellow billed horn bills – affectionately nicknamed the flying chili pepper and flying banana. And none of us will forget the numerous and colorful bee eaters!
