It is not unusual later on in the season to have lion sightings from a Kanyemba lodge. Prey has no choice but to get closer to the river as food source becomes more scarce inland, and predators follow, sometimes using the Zambezi river as a trap.


At the end of October we consistently observed this single female, a couple of kilometres downriver on the Zimbabwean bank, obviously very pregnant and desperately hot, trying to cool down at the the waters edge. Very relaxed.
