Great stuff Andi, we’re making the blog into the closest thing to actually being here on Safari at Londoz. Glad you like the footage and thanks for your comments. Rich

What amazing footage. When we were at Londolozi we were about that close to a female lion killing/eating a Warthog piglet and then a fight ensued between the female lion and her brother. It was quite intense to be that close to witness the power of nature!

I am willing to bet that the entire vehicle vibrated when the growling and fighting began? It never fails to amaze me, just how powerful these big cats actually are and the levels of intensity that they seem to turn on and off.

I was there when it happened. There were 3 vehicles waiting for the lions to move. Unfortunately I was not in the one which saw it happen. All I got was left overs ! I guess that will have to do, it was quite an experience!

Amazing stuff Michael, must have been fantastic to see the interaction between the lioness and her cubs over the carcass. Thanks for your comments.
