Our last 2 days have been a bit more relaxed. We left the Wilderness camp Wednesday morning and traveled around the central Serengeti before heading north. We saw a couple of lions on their "honeymoon," which lasts 3-4 days in anticipation of a new litter of babies in 5 1/2 months. On the way to the lodge, we saw a beautiful male lion with a fresh …

The dart was not optimally placed in this animal, so we had to follow her while waiting for the drug to take effect. We efficiently carried out the same health assessment procedures for this animal, and then administered the quick-acting antidote. She safely returned to her family in short order. We have done a lot of cool things on this trip, but this was by ...
