We had a good sighting of the Mwamba-Kaingo pride on this morning’s game drive, as we drove inland a bit. The lions were hunting a large herd of Cookson’s wildebeest, unfortunately for the lions they were not successful, I think it was getting too hot!
It was a very large group of wildebeests, quite rare to see them in great numbers. The Cookson’s Wildebeest is endemic to South Luangwa, it is quite special to know that they can only be seen here! They are lighter in colour than the Blue Wildebeest, and have very clear markings on the sides and face.
