Morning Over the Plains

August 20, 2016 - Busanga Plains in Kafue National Park, Zambia

The "wakey-wakey" call is 5:15 am for those of us going up in the balloon.  We are a bit delayed by The Killing Machine and her cubs--they are standing at the edge of camp, no more than 10 feet from us.  Two adult males swing by as well.  We'll see them in action later in the day.

 Sunrise.
