We spent more time at Masumba (panorama below) and Shumba which both have nice places to sit and watch. In the evening there were lots of elephants at Shumba and the only thing separating them the from is a small fence that wasn’t well constructed.  Some of the parents started getting nervous so we began the drive back to camp.  On the way, Tobin (the oldest of the Ulbricht boys) spotted a cat which turned out to be a serval.  They are smaller and nocturnal and we had never seen one before.

  It was just about dark and Cynthia was just saying the she was disappointed that while we had heard lions, we didn’t see any.  We decided to stop briefly at Masuma and found the other guest staying at the camp.  The lions were there!  The elephants were not allowing them to drink so they were laying around waiting.  I believe there were 7 with two of them being males.

  On the last morning we got everything loaded and started for home.  We stopped by Masuma but found the lions had moved on.  We reached Lusaka around 9pm and the boys started the new school year the following morning.

    Very interesting Jonathan. When we were at Main Camp at the Nyamandhlovu Hide the same thing happened. The elephants literally chased away any other creature that came near the water while they were drinking. Bruno

    Sounds like you guys had a great trip! So glad you had the chance to see the animals you did with other MCCers as a bonus. You guys are so great at taking advantage of what is around you. We hope the time away energized you for the work ahead!
