July has been a record month for us. Not only did we have spectacular sightings of leopards, cheetahs, and other amazing wildlife encounters, but we had lion sightings of epic proportions.
The month started off with a herd of roughly 800 buffalo making their way from the Kruger National Park into our concession, where the Avoca pride consisting of 16 members, were prowling from every corner. This made life difficult for the buffalo as every move they made was watched very closely.
We recorded a staggering 13 buffalo, 1 warthog and 1 wildebeest which different members of the pride had successfully taken down, making this the most successful month for the Avoca pride witnessed since the opening of Makanyi Lodge.
Below are a few images of the different encounters our guests witnessed between these two rivals of Africa.
