Wild dogs, dagga boys and elephant parades in Laikipia, Kenya

Big dagga boys

Mugie is home to big herds of buffalo. Taking good pictures of them is quite a challenge because of their dark faces. In these herds there were some big bulls, also nicknamed dagga boys, "dagga" being another word for mud. Obviously this bull had a proper mud wallow. As is often the case the presence of buffalos means that the lions are not far away, of which we had some great sightings at Mugie.
