We had lovely sightings last week of lions at Polentswa. They kept us up at night with their roaring and entertained during the day with their courtship. Will upload some photos soon.

Thanks Rob......The feedback we got previously was that if they break out again they will not get another change :wall:

Always wondered if the 3 Cubs made it to adulthood ........ :hmz:

a year later at the same waterhole.......

May be one on the left .... :think:
