And the befriending among the lions themselves seems to
have worked quickly as well, judging by the pic. 8)

Thank you, HeatherY!

If you check the report -- one lioness from Karoo (I suppose one on the young females), and 2 males from Welgevonden nature reserve (if I remember correctly, that borders on Marakele near Thabazimbe) -- hopefully they are also "disease free" like the Kgalagadi lions....

:clap: :dance: :cam: :cam: :cam: :cam:

Slowly but surely there are more wild lion watching opportunities for us in the Cape!

God bless,

Friedrich von Hörsten

Yes, the three "disease free" lion spent their first night of freedom in Mountain Zebra last night. All is well.

Superb news!!!

Pleasantly surprised that the cheetah tracking will continue as I feared they would have stopped doing that.
