WOW!! :shock: :D
A few months ago we stayed in tent number 11.... it's only a short distance to walk to the pool..... :whistle:

While we were there early in the morning a lioness with two cubs walked through the camp.

When did you see this beautiful boy, Lion Queen?

Robbert, that was the morning of 29 October 2015.

3 Lovely males visited the waterhole and then meandered up to the swimming pool area.

I'll post some more photos now now. They had a ball of a time!

We were in chalet 13 so just behind the pool.

In the week we stayed there we had lions in camp every day.

Wow! These are fantastic sightings Lion Queen! Unbelievable! :clap: :clap: :big_eyes: :big_eyes:

I suppose you had to scan the area very well when leaving your tent or arriving back after a drive?! Was that the Kgalagadi Tented Camp? :shock: :shock:
