We started the day with an game drive to find the elusive klipspringer, a mammal that lives on kopjes. In another post, we saw a spotted hyena and a baby gazelle. In the photo below, a male giraffe tastes the female giraffe’s urine to detect estrus. Note the baby giraffe with the darker spots.
We enjoyed a hippo pool. We saw a martial eagle and the klipspringer.
Klipspringers are very shy, and they usually ran when we drove by. They have pads on their feet, to better grip the granite kopje. We saw Maasai herding cattle and getting water.
In the evening we saw a Maasai ceremony.
