Real Cubs

by Kevin

Hi Mario we spent a few days at Croc Bridge from the 21st to the 3rd May. While we were there a large pride of 26 odd lions set up camp about 12 km from Lower Sabie. We heard that a female had some very small cubs and set off early morning to find then.

At the end of Gomondwana Loop near the Rhino dams we found them. I could not believe how small they were. Here are two shots I took. I could not get a really good shot with them walking with their mother as mom tended to walk quite a bit in front of them. Hope you like the Pics.

What cute cubs!

You always wonder if they will reach adulthood as their mortality rate is so high.

Great pics Kevin!
by: Mario

Photographing lion cubs in the open is quite an achievement Kevin. Most people see the cubs in thick bush or grass in the Kruger so well done in getting them in the road.

"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
