Hi

On the 24th of Oct we saw over 10 lion cubs on the S 100, about 500m from the S41/S 100 T point. Some of the other vehicles claimed to have seen 15 cubs. They were seen from 0545 hours till 0945 when they went deeper into the bush on both sides of the road. What was surprising was the absence of any adult lions. The cubs were wandering around without any supervision and some went off on one side of the S 100 while others were on the other side. Would anyone have any idea what happened to the cubs and the rest of the pride?? A few pics of the cubs are given below

I agree with o-dog - nice Lion pictures. Issi - this one is a bit friendlier than the big guy above :D We took the photos on the 29 Nov 2011 a few meters from the Afsaal entrance.

Nothing can chill out quiet like a lion can.

Hi Meerkitty :D
Gorgeous lions, I cant tell from your pics but how many were in this pride.

I keep records of all the prides between Lower Sabie and Tshokwane so am very interested to hear more about them.

Regards
Bornfree :D

Hi :)

There were 4 lions - 2 males and 2 females :thumbs_up:
When we came across them, they were all lying very close, so it was like a bundle of lions :lol:

hey kittykat!

We saw the same Male on a night drive on the 21 of October, near the S100. He was part of a pride which had just made a kill.... We watched them feasting on that zebra and later we found the Male with the big wound on his back, directly on the road.....

Great pictures Buffalo Soldier. The Lion might have gotten into a fight with other Lions by the looks of it. But great pictures, Lions are such great creatures, No wonder they are my favourite.

Hilarious! I've never seen a lion sneeze before. Also love how she uses the man-made object to hide.
