Maybe brother and sister from a group of young lions at Leeuwdril. The pair played together for about an hour before wandering off.

Two more lion shots taken at Leeuwdril, maybe the titles could be the King and the Young Pretender.

The adult lion was drinking and the young lion was stood watching about 30 metres away. Possibly thinking "one day I'll be taking his place'

Fabulous photos JimS! Thank you for sharing.

We have been to KTP three times, but never had such good cat sightings. Will definitely have to go again (and again).
