The elephants

The Elephants always have one principle when they look after their children. They put their young ones (calves) on their front legs for the safety of their children. When in a group, the calves stay in the middle. Then the male is always around, and the female is on her front leg. A female elephant breastfeeds and has a pregnancy for 22 months (bears only one child).  A female elephant carries a pregnancy longer than all other animals. After giving birth, the elephant raises the child for 15 years and more before becoming independent and does not carry another pregnancy until the child grows up. The best thing to see about elephants is how they use their trunks to eat leaves, drink water, pour water on themselves during the heat, and sprinkle sand to repel flies that bother them, especially in river areas.

Impala and the Wildebeests

On a hot sunny day, the Impalas rest under the shade of the acacia tree in Mikumi National Park. Most of the time, Impalas graze with the wildebeests to ensure their safety. With the eyes, ears, and broad shoulders of the wildebeests, Impalas feel more secure from the Lions. They probably also know that the lions generally stay in the shady areas at noon and feed more in the evening and the mornings.

Lions in a Hunt

There are so many animals in Mikumi national park. So, there is plenty of food for the lions to eat. Often the lions kill gazelles and deer that they manage to eat and not eat again for a day. The lions kill and eat meat for one day and do not eat again for a week. So they eat once per week. Per day they eat 35 to 75 Kilos.
