Thank you Son godin for posting those great pictures here! I must (again) say that I do not want to share a camp site with this tough looking male lion. FMJ

For those of you that do understand Afrikaans...........

Article in Die Burger

Not sure if it's the Jan van Wyk from the forum, but if it is, what a story to tell!!

In short...........

There was a lioness in Kamqua Ladies toilets Sunday and when a lady wanted to go in she was surprised by a very aggressive lioness.

Apparently the lioness broke some of the wooden bars to gain entrance and after a while found the hole again and left the toilet and disappeared over the dune.

My goodness what a fright that would be. Could have been a hungry lioness too and the fact that it knew enough to break the bars, just shows how intelligent they are.

@ gatita: What a beautiful sighting at Marie's and a big pride too! Very nice photo and thanks for sharing!

@ GavinW: Hi Gavin, that is soooo scary, but good. I wonder how she opened that sliding door? (I saw this photo to-day on the 'net',) It appeared in the Volksblad with a nice photo of Kampqua. It made me long back to KTP again! FMJ
