It’s late afternoon here in the Okavango Delta, Shinde camp, overlooking Shinde lagoon with Maunachera main channel flowing about 300 meters from the west to the easternly direction making its way to Xakanaxa Khwai (Moremi game reserve). It’s here that I was to pick up four safari agents who wear ment to stay with me for one night as their guide and then continue to their next destination.
After pick up, instead of driving to camp, I decided we carry on with the safari drive cause it was already late. As we were driving from the airstrip to a nearby water hole called Four Pans to look for animals, I turned around as to ask my guest what they would like to see most here at Shinde camp! .. a cheetah kill, they replied.
Some few minutes into the drive, we saw a big male elephant that was rocking a marula tree forth and back as to drop the ripe fruits to the ground and a beautiful hyena passed nearby. As we’re watching the hyena, I heard vervets monkey and birds alarming from behind the bush. I explained the meaning of calls to them and right there, I drove in that very same direction and guess what we saw? A cheetah with a kill right in front of the safari jeep with a golden light to its face, definitely what they wanted to see.
