H1-3 at S125 intersection
During our sighting we saw only one other vehicle that approached us from Tshokwane. He watched the kittens and adults for about five minutes and then turned around and returned in the direction from which he’d come. A lone driver in the car and I’m guessing a polite employee that had to get to work. So, we were left alone with the pride for nearly one and a half hours, but somebody had to do it. .....................Thank you all for your comments and observations!

ekoppen, what a special experience. :D

You certainly captured some magical moments. Those cubs are such cuties and there seems to be such tender moments with the adults.
