While staying on the reserve, we split time between the reserve and Etosha National Park. The game sightings at both places were varied and fantastic. Given how dry the country is, while in the park, we traveled from water hole to water hole. We waited at one while a lioness patiently lurked in a crevasse for something to get close enough to pounce. A zebra finally ignored all the other game’s caution and got close enough for her to make a play. She rose up, leapt, tripped on something and tumbled to the ground. The zebra lived another day.
In the reserve we spent 2 days observing a pair of lion cubs with mom and their big sister. They were just getting old enough to introduce to the pride.
