Aditya - is this caracal family from 2 years back or on your recent trip to Mara? Am headed there in Oct and have heard of a serval family that many people have been able to see, but wondering if I can push my luck
Anita the caracal was from last year but the caracal is from mid August. There is one female (near Double Cross) with three cubs. Some people had found her den and she was being seen regularly for a few days. A lioness tried to dig the serval cubs out from their den (in a termite mound) and the serval mother and cubs disappeared the next day, probably changed their den. We could not find her again in the next 15 days. However the serval picture posted here is of another female that we had found near the Talek River. I am sure you will find some servals - I saw four different ones in August. However no caracals in the 4 weeks that I was there and did not even hear of someone seeing caracals.
Thanks! yup I had read about the caracal family from 2010-2011 near Mara North but nothing recently this year. Fingers crossed for the serval cubs!
