2 sub-adult cubs at Dalkeith playing and drinking on 21 August, no sign of the pride except for the Lion (in my earlier post) doing his marking march from Dalkeith to Craig Lockhart. These same 2 cubs were still by themselves at the waterhole next morning.

gannet,
Those are beautiful cubs... :dance:
What a great sighting and beautiful photos :clap: :thumbs_up:
They do look a bit young to be on their own... :hmz:
Hope they met up with the rest of the pride and remain safe :?
