Immersed in monkey-rich forest, Kichwa Tembo is an opulent oasis of Hemingway-style tents with sweeping views of the greatest grassland system in the world - the exquisite Masai Mara. Kichwa Tembo Bateleur Camp is a smaller, exclusive camp adjacent to the main camp.
Very Happy Ending!!
The mother died early in February 2007. The game rangers were there to help the 3 cubs by at least killing the tommy gazelles for them once a week. BUT on 7th May 2007 during the morning game drive with the guests, the 3 cubs were spotted! They had killed a mature impala - which was not an easy job for them - as they had to struggle with the impala for more than ten minutes! The three cubs managed at long last with maximum effort! After killing, they started eating right there on the spot and after almost an hour, they were full! It did not take long before the vultures arrived... The guests and I counted more than 48 vultures which were white backed vultures and 2 lappet-faced vultures. An Amazing Sighting!!!!.
HOW WONDERFUL!!! I am so happy to read that the three cubs seemed to have killed the impala on their own. We saw Honey and the three cubs this past September and was absolutely devastated to hear that Honey died and were of course very, very worried about her cubs. Hopefully they will continue to hunt together successfully and will remain healthly. A true legacy to Honey! Thank you so much Elly for this posting.
