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'

Hello

We saw this very ill lion at Marie se Draai waterhole, as many people did, during our stay in February. This was on a guided night drive. The guide said the relevant rangers were aware: he also confirmed that the liquid coming from his mouth was a bad sign. The lion had been there all day and was still there the following morning. Can anyone tell us what happened to him? What was his illness?
