Exquisite photos Mlambane, RP, Floris Cathy. :clap: :clap: :clap: I might even consider elevating lion to one of my favourite cats, along with cheetah and leopard, with such superb shots of them. :twisted:

Must have been a very exciting sighting Nannie, was this from Ngwenya?

Our latest Lion seen in Kruger this June, he had a huge entourage of cars following him down the N'watimhirri causeway.

Great sighting and photo Scotm. :clap: :cam:
I try be first at the gate and sometimes I am successful. I came across a pride of lions lying on the H1-3 about 14 kms south of Satara earlier this month.
Here is a pic of the male lion.
