A Very Special Feline

An early morning game drive "came up trumps" this week as we came accross this stunning Serval!

We've had high hopes of ticking this box since we moved up to the Serengeti, one of the best possible habitats in which to view them. 

Although chances here are better than in other places Servals are extremely elusive creatures, prefering the long grass in which they hunt rodents and birds with their famous "pounce and swat" tactics. This male has been observed between Lamai and the little stream to our East that the guides refer to as "Mama Kent". He has even delighted guests by occasionally appearing in the early mornings between rooms eight and nine looking for his breakfast no doubt.
