5 Lion cubs just off the H10 some 9-10km north of Lower Sabie Camp (Saturday 21/Jul/12 - last light).

That evening in the same area we saw what I at the time though was 2 females and a young male, but didn't get a good look. Next morning nearby, we care across 1 female, 1 young male and 2 youngsters. Here the young male and one of the youngsters playing on the H10. Guess those were the ones from the evening before.

Hi all,

This happened on the yesterday on the 15th of September in the Kruger National Park in South Africa

Lions were busy eating their kill when a rhino came out of nowhere.
The lions then started chasing this rhino to get it away from their kill.
Unbelievable photos by Dirk
