Thank you Jan, if that was two different lion prides on either side of the waterhole, one can understand that she was nervous with her youngsters by her side!

Thank you for posting Barolong (2012) and a stunning Balete (2013) at Marie's!

Welcome Hippotragus and just keep on going to KTP! It WIL deliver those leopards sooner or later.

…..and another photo of leopard Kruiper taken on the same day as above!

We saw this lion with a big T tattoo at Urikaruus camp waterhole and were told by the camp attendant that it was because he was a troublemaker! Image
Then the other lion saw me :shock:

Thank you pamelajane for posting those very nice photos of the lions and staring straight into the camera!

These four lionesses were very thirsty during our December 2010 visit to KTP one early morning at 14th Borehole
