These large herbivores are all in wonderful condition and are taking full advantage of the good grazing. With temperatures soaring into the mid thirties, we have also seen them wallowing or bathing to cool off and get rid of any unwanted ticks.
I managed to find one bull who had a wonderful floral selection caught up in his horns – he looked rather unimpressed with his headdress!
With all the buffalo around at the moment, we hope to see our lion prides taking full advantage of their presence so that they can get some well needed nourishment.
