Today I am travelling from the Laikipia Predator Project down to Nairobi, and then back to camp. I am happy to say that from my bed last night I was able to hear the amazing (although slightly scary!) sound of lions roaring. It is an incredible sound, which I have not yet experienced from camp in the Chyulu Hills, where the lions are much more elusive. Here is one of the collared lions, Nosero, roaring, for those of you not lucky enough to have heard this before in the wild.

I am not really looking forward to being in Nairobi, now that I am so used to the tranquillity of the bush, and also having just read the awful story of Iregi Mwenja who was robbed at gunpoint there yesterday after giving a talk to KWS.
Iâ??m glad to say that very soon I will be back in camp, looking at views like this..
..and wildlife like this..
