My contribution for this week’s challenge…
My first two entries were taken on a day of forty-two degrees temperature and included around nine hours of travelling.
This ostrich family was feeling the heat by late morning.
This small amount of shade was helping the chicks cool down.
By late afternoon this pride of lions had decided that this dirt road was cooler than anywhere else they could find. The cars in front us disturbed the lions enough to allow us to drive up the road and take some great shots of our first lion sighting.
Finally, on a surprise game drive on our last night at Sausage Tree Camp we sighted Limpy and her cubs. She was about twenty metres from us at this stage. However, kids being inquisitive decided to come over for a closer look at the tourist. We spent about thirty minutes in the company of the cubs who decided that they could see us clearly at around fifteen feet from the car. Limpy was so named because she has had a limp since birth. This does not, we were told, impede her when her belly is empty and breakfast, lunch or dinner is in sight.
