Theuns Germishuys, a reader from Richards Bay, sent his photos of this sighting to go! He writes:
"I live in Richards Bay and decided to drive to the Lake St Lucia section of iSimangaliso Wetland Park for the day, in the hopes of tracking down a lifer. (I’m a serious birdwatcher.) Instead, I found something even more unique!
I’ve seen the Big Five and many other animals during my visits to different reserves over the years, but I’ve never been fortunate enough to see a kill.(Although I’m also the kind of person who will cover his eyes!) I was on the Grassland Loop on the eastern bank of Lake St Lucia, about 5 km from the Catalina Bay viewpoint, when I noticed movement in the tall grass.
