An early morning winter drive at Little Kwara produced great drama. First we found a cub all alone in an open flood, in anticipation mode, the most obvious question was ‘where is the mother?’. Suddenly out of the nearby bush came a herd of kudus purposefully walking into the plain in our direction, this was a clue the lioness was in the thicket hunting. Before we could get cameras ready the action was on, a lioness after a kudu cow, she missed. When she looked behind her another female kudu broke into the flood plain and she impatiently waited, gave chase but the target was just an inch away. Note the remarkable muscle action on both the kudu and the predator. A hormone can make animals grow wings. End of it all we were pleased there was no blood.
