It was two lions we followed for quite a while and they were terrorizing everything along the way!

So when they saw these BWB they had to have a go at them too! There were two calves but after a few hundred meters all stopped running! The calves walked to their moms and the lions went back to the shade!

Really great photos Jan! Thank you for posting.

I think this may be the same 'white' sprinbok that lion queen saw during December. This photo was taken in early January 2013.
