At Nkhlulu we decided to get some coffee and while we were waiting for the shop to open I took a look around for something to photograph.

A Bushcraft 2015 story:


The lioness was definitely stalking the local Nkuhlu bush buck and I couldn’t help but wonder if people in the car park had any idea of what was happening. In the pic below you can see the 1 lioness and Nkuhlu in the background


Image



As the 1 lioness ran into Nkuhlu the baboons immediately started going wild and we could see bush buck and boons running all over the place, but lost sight of the lioness.

The slowed up person behind us still hadn’t moved, so we couldn’t reverse to get a better view, which only increased the frustration.

Eventually we spotted a lioness cruising down to the riverbed, so assumed the hunt was unsuccessful.

There were a few big eyes in the Nkuhlu car park,

I hope that they will soon install the "thing" where they can store the advanced electricity \O

Using renewable energy is a big step forward \O

The thing is that is way more electricity than a picnic spot needs. As Alf said, it is a precursor to the new camp there, where the developers require SANParks to be responsible for sufficient power. Once again taxpayer money is effectively being used to assist profit-based connected individuals.
