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).

Thank you for your kind comments, they are very much appreciated. An article in the latest Getaway magazine had stats showing the number of lions in Africa had dropped from 200,000 to 23,000 in the last 50 years. I guess it's a case of 'take your children to see the lions now", it could be too late in another few years.
