Simbambili Game Lodge
A word from our rangers.
22 to 28 July 2008
The mornings have started to heat up over the past week. As a result of the increase in temperatures the hot water bottles haven't been such a necessity on the early morning safaris! The game viewing has been superb as usual although the lions have continued to be somewhat elusive. They have been moving through our traversing area briefly before moving off on to other properties. However, we had a great sighting of lions this week. Both the lions and the herd of buffalo were testing each other by using a road as a boundary. They would each come closer and closer and then retreat. It was fascinating to see them interact like this.
