Spot lioness hunts wilderbeest

Year after year people express surprise at the vast herds roaming the Conservancies during February and March. Their jaws gape as yet another mother drops her fawn. Glib, poorly researched guide-books and anodyne brochures have clearly never heard of the Loita Migration.

One of the lead Enesikiria females has clearly ‘herd’ about these ruminants and Valley Camp’s Mika expertly caught her dragging down a wildebeest bull to feed her sub-adult family.

Hundreds of thousands of these charcoal and striped grazers are still filling up Naboisho. So are a few lucky, knowledgeable tourists.
