Amazing pics

Amazing photos, especially the one with the youngster in mid-air.
I would be hesitant to call this their first ever kill though. The first one to be witnessed, certainly, but given that they will be catching only small prey at the moment and therefore consuming it quickly, there is probably little or no evidence of any of their previous successes…

Hi, Of the older cubs, wasn’t it the male who had the limp? and to make his first kill! Do you know that the genders are of the younger cubs?

Thanks for relaying the maturing of the Tsala cubs through regular updates and great images. Haejin and I look forward to getting back in a few years when this band is teaching their own cubs. Todd

David,

Spectacular images! We enjoyed seeing the cubs at Londolozi in mid-July and now look at them… Coming back soon to check on their progress!

An unreal series of absolutely beautiful pictures. I’m so in love with the agility one, and “attack” where he practises on the older cub. It is so unbelievable that I am able to watch these youngsters really mature… and from such a distance.
The Tsalala Pride growing strength by strength.

Just got back from watching them “play” on Sept 10-14 as they were waiting for mom to get back from hunting. Moms were in front of camp on night of 9/13
