Day 7

Left Letaba to leave the Park and halfway between Letaba and Phalaborwa on the H7 we saw two lion cubs in the road! After taken photo's for an while a huge roar came out of the bush,we thought that it was the mom but suddenly an huge male lion walked from behind us next to us and roared and then walked of calling the cubs! They followed and then we left!

Kruger Park stays the place where I do feel relaxed and will be back soon!
