Driving around the park on day 2

Based now in Mushara Bush Camp, we drove back into the park for another day of a wildlife aventure. We were looking for rhino, but unsuccessful. We had caught a glimpse of one at night by the waterhole, but drove along the Rhino Trail and saw none there.

Spotted some cars parked at the side of the track and eventually saw why; a group of about 10 lions and cubs.

Came across a couple of elephants appearing to fight in slow motion; they barely moved for minutes at a time.

A large male wildebeest; males of most species here tend to get kicked out of the family groups and live a quite soliatry life until breeding impulses come into play!
