Many of you have seen the photos that we took over the last 2.5 years of the Patricia pride cubs growing up. Well as we expected the boys are now gone. The good news is that there has been at least two or most likely three new litters. The pride now numbers at least 22 animals. The two pride males, stubby, six females and 13 cubs 10 about 6 months or so old and 3 very little ones. On this trip we photographed all but stubby, the rangers though assure us that he is still around.

Hope you enjoy these photos of the latest cubs. We'll update then this fall or spring depends on where you are. In any case in a few months.

Cubs at Chudop

We had the privilege of seeing them at the Chudop waterhole in April, the little cubs stayed with their moms while the older cubs lay on the opposite side. Stubby was there two.

Not sure if it is the official name, but that or sometimes stubby's pride is what the rangers call them. The pride is based around Namutoni. we've seen them most at Chudop and Klien Namutoni.

Nice family photos!

Did you name the mother of the pride or is that her 'official' name?

"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 information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, founder of CAROK (Camps and Roads of Kruger)  South Africa
