In the heart of Maasai territory on the north-eastern boundary of the Serengeti National Park is a private concession of 10 000 hectares, set aside for the exclusive use of Klein's Camp's 20 guests. The spectacular location of the camp on the edge of the Kuka Hills commands sweeping views across a broad valley through which the annual great migration passes.
TEAM WORK IS IMPORTANT!
What a day! We were driving along silio stream and saw the Black rock pride. They were about 18 lions all together but were scattered on the plain. One by one they started to move. It was around 18h30. We followed them for 15 minutes. One lioness called striker saw a congress of baboons up on a shepherd tree. Four youngsters couldn't run quickly and remained on the tree. They were confused and panicked and were calling for help. But it was impossible as the lions were already under the tree. The lioness climbed up the tree in the hopes of catching one of them. She was growling at other lions claiming that all of the baboons up there were hers. She even chased some of the juvenile lions away. It was very interesting.
The difficult part was when she climbed the tree she almost fell on the ground. Her eyes was always up. After 15 minutes of struggle she gave up because she was left alone and had to follow the rest of pride. The baboon came down and ran away. I think she could have killed one if they worked as a team.
