We’ve spent a lot of time over the last 24 hours looking at trees. In Ishasha, part of the Queen Elizabeth National Park, there are tree-climbing lions and on two game drives we went off in search of them.
There were plenty other animals around:
But tree-climbing lions? Not one.
Then we saw a land rover parked under a tree, with lenses trained on the branches. A sure sign. Wilson parked the vehicle and we looked up. Not lions, but this beautiful female leopard.
While we didn’t see tree-climbing lions (population: 20) in Ishasha, we did get this great view of one of the 3 leopards in the park, so we really can’t complain!
We’re now in location for the main event. It’s a beautiful setting, with the hills of Rwanda to the south…. and the thunder rumbling all around!
