Child attacked by lion

A child has been attacked and injured by a lion near Amboseli National Park. The young child was herding goats when he wandered close to a female lioness hiding in long grass with her young cubs. When he came too close she jumped out of the grass and attacked him. It seems she was trying […]

Have you ever heard a cheetah before?

Yesterday we were out looking for lions with the film crew that are staying with us at the moment, and we heard a strange noise. At first we thought it was a bird, but we followed the sound and as we got closer we discovered it was a cheetah, walking around on the plains and […]
