We were also very lucky to see 2 females and 1 male at the koppie just before you go on the mountain in May this year.

Hi Bushbuddies,

It was nice to meet you, although only from the distance due to the lions.

As soon as we have sorted through our pictures, I will try to post some of our lion pictures, too.

When we got back to camp, the male lion was laying at the end of the "road" , close to the last two tents (ours was "barbet", don't remember the name of the last tent).

It was an unexpected and great sighting :D

Nina

Just saw the media release- 2 new lions released in Marakele. Any further lion or other sightings from Marakele?

Did the park get good rain during the summer?

Yes, there are still lions in Marakele... We've visited the park between 25-april and 29-april. Rain has caused lots of damage to the roads, but park management is working on it. Not all roads are already accessible by 2WD. I'll try to upload some nice pictures later this week.
