And the befriending among the lions themselves seems to
have worked quickly as well, judging by the pic. 8)

Thank you, HeatherY!

If you check the report -- one lioness from Karoo (I suppose one on the young females), and 2 males from Welgevonden nature reserve (if I remember correctly, that borders on Marakele near Thabazimbe) -- hopefully they are also "disease free" like the Kgalagadi lions....

:clap: :dance: :cam: :cam: :cam: :cam:

Slowly but surely there are more wild lion watching opportunities for us in the Cape!

God bless,

Superb news!!!

Pleasantly surprised that the cheetah tracking will continue as I feared they would have stopped doing that.
