I was getting ready for the beginning of another beautiful morning in Africa when I heard the alarm calls from the resident troop of baboons that often roost near Tents 9 and 10. The next thing we know, a very jittery housekeeper came knocking on the door, saying that there were lions under the boardwalk at the junction of Little Mombo Tents 2 and 3!

Upon investigating, we found four lioness on a fresh impala kill. We immediately alerted all camp staff and guides. The guides were not far from camp, so they all executed a sharp U-turn and came for a closer look - all this before the first cup of morning coffee.
