It is an amazing and extraordinary sight when a giraffe starts to give birth. Then the unimaginable. The Manze pride strikes while this giraffe is in the process of giving new life. The circle of life continues.
Although we could not get pictures of the whole process, we did get some videos. A first for us was the mother lion trying to cover the Giraffe with sand prior to ambling off to the lake for a drink.
To be at the right place at the right time and witness a standoff between a lion and a leopard must rank very high on the must see list. Our guide Zach and his guests were privileged to experience this rare sighting.
We wonder what is for dinner tonight...

As the outlying water sources are drying up the bird life around Lake Manze has exploded into life. Many different species all over the show add colour and life.
At this time of year the impala start to drop the new babies. Clusters of young ones congregated together like they were in a crèche. We are trying to figure out if they have arrived early because they sense some rain.
Finally the wild dogs have been spotted close to the edge of Lake Manze with two new puppies in attendance. This makes for exciting news knowing that this pack of dogs is steadily growing. Numbers are now up to fifteen.
