Daily Synopsis.

Greetings and salutations to you all, it's Grant here. Back in the bush and happy to be home after the madness of the Comrades Marathon. Having been away the week and not being on drive at the moment it is pretty difficult to bring you the in's and out's of the bush but I think the major news is the appearance of a young pride of Lion. I was introduced to them on my drive in and found thier tracks at Motswari Reception which I proceeded to follow all the way into the staff village where they rested a wee while before moving further to the West. They were found later on morning drive and again relocated on afternoon drive where I again saw them, this time as they walked into Simbavati River Lodges staff village. They appear relaxed with the vehicles now but from what I saw they are all fairly young Lions and I did not regognise any of them. I'm waiting on a couple of pictures that may help us identify our new arrivals. So watch this space. Other than that all seems well out there and the guy's have reported good sightings of a variety of game. I'll keep you all posted to the daily sightings and as sson as I get out on drive I'll be able to bring you a more in depth report.
