2 Female Lions with 6 kids (hungry Kids!!!)

Sherry and I had the experience of over 3 days being able to photograph a group of 2 female lions with 6 cubs. While the cubs tried to feed from both females, it appearded that only one was willing to cooperate. Over the three days we took hundreds of photos and a couple of short videos

When traveling they tended to have one female in the lead with the kids in the middle and the other female bringing up the rear.

These kids were always hungry. I "assume" that they will join the rest of the pride soon as the kids are very mobile.

... If there is a rest of the pride.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information.
