  Lion in Pendjari Park
by janiebaxter

Lions, leopards and cheetah all live in the Pendjari Park. We saw Lions twice on our visit - one sighting each day. The first lion was stalking some antelope but suddenly stopped and roared, basically announcing its presence. We couldn't understand why it did this but then I thought I saw a hyena through the binoculars so maybe the lion was put off by it being there.
Although there are quite a few cheetahs we didn't see one.
We didn't see leopard either but they are very shy and difficult to see here.
