More than a few years ago now,

when Maggie was boss of the backyard,

a stranger passed through Maggie’s territory.

 

Maggie’s attempt to catch said stranger

were thwarted when stranger deftly slipped

through our boundary fence.

Unforeseen 1: Our 2013 safari itinerary did not state

that there would be an evening game drive…

 

…the day before we were due to depart

Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

 

Unforeseen 2:  Our driver told us

There has been a sighting,

but it’s at the other end of the reserve”.

So, for the next ten minutes we held on tightly

as we bumped our way along a rudimentary track

We soon came upon Limpy the Lioness…

…and her Cubs

It didn’t take long until…

…the Cubs decided…

…elephant dung…

…was a good place to do…

…some tourist watching.

 

These are…

 

…but…

…a sample…


…of the 300 photos taken during our twenty minute sighting.
