Foto Phaves: Schotia Safari
What is new, gnu? A wildebeest eyes us as we stop to watch during a safari drive at Schotia Safari Park. They're called gnu because of the noise they make.

As we drove around in an open air Landy, our guide, Rainier, did a quick u-turn. Over the radio, a maintenance worker announced that the lions had killed a wildebeest.
The alpha male lion was not at the kill, and this younger 5-year-old took over that role. A juvenile male relative waited a short distance away, kept from feeding by this lion.

One of the newest members of the pride.

Family Feast. Sort of like Thanksgiving dinner, only more primal.
