Hi Jan,

Hi Lion Queen,

Those Kgalagadi lions are sooo beautiful!! You will have to search hard to find such beautiful lions in the Kruger.

Thank you both for posting your beautiful pictures!

Hi Ghostdogg,

It was April 2009 early morning at Samevloeiing.

The cubs were up on the dune next to the waterhole and next the whole pride came running across the pan from Botswana.

An amazing morning!
