Lion Hunt

After visiting some missionaries in Maun I went to a Makgaikgadi Game Reserve in the Kalahari Desert. It was incredible to fall asleep with the sounds of elephants, zebra and lion’s in the background and it was a nice time to visit with missionaries and get to know each other better.

At this reserve there were some lions and thus began the hunt. The afternoon we arrived we caught a glimpse of some tracks heading towards the camp site. The guide said that the lions had come that way earlier that morning. Throughout our game drives we saw the effects of the lions. Several kills they had made. They seemed to especially like Zebra. Then that night we heard them calling to each other all night long keeping us awake. We searched high and low but no lion sightings. Then early that evening there seemed to be something that spooked over 1,000 zebras causing them to stampede all around us but no lion.

We never did find the lion but I am positive that we did go by it several times. The search will continue….
