What a privilege to have been able to watch those young Lions play Jan! :clap: :clap:

We also saw that Jackal at Dikbaardskolk Anne-marie! At first I thought people brought their dog with, but as we came closer, I saw it was a Jackal and couldn't believe my eyes. He was very thin then! He looks much better here! :D

WillieV thank you for posting those stunning photo of leopard Balete @ Marie's, Can hardly believe your luck, not to mention those beautiful lions cubs! .....and the cheetahs of 2010!

DP; A Brownie at Marie se Gat, what a luck and it seems during brought daylight!....and what about that Bedinkt beautiful Male lion!

Jan I can not see enough of your playing lion cubs! You were very fortunate to be there at that time! Thank you again!

Anne-Marie: Dikbaardskolk produce all the time! But I would not like that BBJ to "grin" at me!

Union's End picnic spot, 7 November 2012:

I decided to skip my toilet break when I saw the queue.

While the male was queuing, the female enjoyed a nap in a shady spot.

Actually when I arrived the two of them were lying in the shade just behind the entrance to the toilets on the right hand side. I was really grateful that I had decided to drive as close to the toilets as possible and didn't stop at the tables and walk to the toilets.
After I had watched them for a while and taken lots of photos, the shade at the entrance started to disappear, and the male went to look for shade in the building while the female crawled into the little fenced-in area (the fence was already pulled down) which wasn't only shady but also had some water dripping down from a pipe - lions' spa. Smart female! :D ;)

I am thoroughly enjoying this topic. But some of the photos are quite scary! :big_eyes:
