Wildlife Enjoy the Samburu Rains

Apr 26, 2018 | Categories: Lions, Reserves, Wildlife | 8 Comments

Samburu has received¬† a lot of rain in the past few weeks – 185 mm since March – and 133 mm in April alone!¬† This is a very special time to be here – the river is flowing fast, and grass & flowers are everywhere. It is spectacular. Our field team have had many amazing wildlife sightings over the past few weeks and these are some of our favourite wildlife moments. And the rain continues…

Excellent , i hope the cubs survive as lions have a high mortality rate. Who is the father of these cubs.
