Here are some of my photos of him captured in November 2012...

Here are the Polentswa twins, the one name is Jan, not sure of his brother. I was informed they could be the sons of Ousus, not sure as all cats look alike :hmz: :hmz: :D :D :D

Wow great images Morkel and PRWIN :clap: :clap:

The Kij Kij Male have a younger companion. Still got a few years to go to match his brother, but still a beautiful Male.

Wow !!!!! Shows the Kgalagadi lions are so much more beautiful than their KNP families!!!


Might just be the reason for our next visit to KTP (5-13 April 2014) LQ :hmz: .
The pride of 30 in KNP is also awesome I think :hmz: .

Here is a pic of a beautiful male that we saw at Craig Lockhart on the 4th of March 2013.

Suppose its not often that you see lions playing like this . . . even the burst mode
was set to slow for this unforeseen action . . . adding to the confusion there were
four cubs chasing one another arround the Combi ! (taken at Casper se Draai)

Morning all

Maybe you can shed some light on the following image. It was sent to me by a friend who received it from someone else. This is apparently at one of the camp sites in KTP. Anyone have more information about it ?
