Kiba Point

Front row seats at the Kiba airshow

20 July 2011

I went out to the Kiba airstrip yesterday to receive some vegetable supplies, and was surprised to find a rather formidable welcome party for the plane.

I suppose that to those of us who have travelled across continents in airplanes, a small, single-engine craft nimbly landing on the dirt slope we call the kiba airstrip may not be too exciting. These lions, however, seem quite impressed by the performance.

In the end, however, the lion's natural laziness overwhelmed the excitement of the plane landing and taking off, and guests debarking with a week's worth of vegetables for the camp. The pair never stirred from their shady haven. The new guests were quite chuffed to find their first Selous lions 30 second into their visit.
