Okay I've uploaded the video. Its pretty poor :slap:
And I'm sorry I will keep my mouth shut next time I take a vid :redface:
Needless to say, the vid does not capture the moment!

What a spectacular sighting ekoppen :thumbs_up:

We experienced a very similar sighting in December 2011.
We were sitting at the Gudzani water hole (at the far end of the S100 where it meets the S41) when 4 lioness and 10 - 15 cubs came out of the bush and made their way down to the waters edge for a drink.
They all had very round bellies and it was clear that they were thirsty after a long night's feeding.

The cubs were definitely smaller than those in your clip so I wonder if it was the same pride??? :hmz:

I'll see if I can find the photos

How many prides are there said to be in and around the S100? or is it just this mega pride and a few coalitions of outcast males on the fringes of the mega pride's territory?

How big is this mega prides territory? :hmz:

Thank you.
You are certainly welcome to be my shadow but I have an idea that I might do quite well being yours too.
If you enjoyed the kittens you might enjoy a preview of "The cubs of S100" as well.
It still needs some fine tuning.

SW, what I would like, is to find them on the Mananga, with no other vehicles around. 8) I think you might see some cool stuff and interaction. :thumbs_up:

This is why the S100 is the ultimate lion road. I will take me family to Kruger in October and hope to find them in the 3 nights we will be spending at Satara. :pray: :cam:
