Day 9 of the virtual tour of our first trip to Kenya - Lion Day
After yet another stunning sunrise; today was the day of the Lion. We saw them waking, sleeping, yawning, sleeping, mating, sleeping, stalking, sleeping, prowling, sleeping, slinking., snoozing and of course.. sleeping. The only activity missing was a hunt; but this was clearly not on their agenda today. Doing their best to avoid the big cats was a clan of banded mongoose, scurrying through the grass avoiding any confrontation.
After the game drives we had colourful Agama Lizards in the camp along with the Mousebirds, whose antics were enchanting and last but not least the distant Elephant cousin, a Rock Hyrax.
