Wow! A lion on Lammertjiesleegte Loop. Now that is worth seeing. Also good spot for food, with large numbers of zebras, haartebest, rhebok and springbok.

OMW..... :dance: :dance: :dance:
We feel so privileged to have seem him!!!! We were in the park for one night on the 8th and saw him on Lammertjiesleegte Loop :D
We watched him for ages while a Red Hartebeest watched him too, until he was so "spooked' and ran off at high speed. It appears he had killed a Hartebeest which we could not see in the long grass , perhaps that's why the Hartebeest was so stressed? He seemed to be dragging it to a better position before starting to feed on it.
Went to look for him on the morning of the 9th before leaving the park but with no success.

Heavily cropped so you can see his beauty :D You too can see blood on the side of his mane.

Last time there was a prize for the first forumite to submit pics of the newly released lions. A nights accomodation to come back and enjoy the beautiful park! How happy would I be if that was the case this time :wink: :wink: Very happy!! :D
Coincidentally we stayed in Chalet no 23 on the 8th, think I left my cell phone cover there so that's another good reason to have to go back :lol: Such a stunning park :thumbs_up:
