It was a real privilege to have seen the older white cup last weekend, looking strong and healthy………getting news that another was born recently makes me want to return to Satara soonest. :mrgreen:

All of a sudden August is a very long way away :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Fantastic news that there is now 2 (that I know of). One of the males in the area must have fairly strong white lion genes in him, hopefully this is a good sign of things to come :pray: :pray:

This past December we came to a traffic jam on the S100.
Apparently we had just missed some Lions disappearing into the bush. :cry:
And among them was the white cub.

Hi all
Apologies if wrong place to post thread. I dont have any pics as proof- will try to get them. My friend stayed at Satara 2 weeks ago and on a game drive the ranger spotted a lioness with 4 small cubs- one being WHITE!

Anyone else heard about that. I know they are uncommon and usually around Timbavati
I will be going there in May- hopefully still see it

Thanks
