Mele the 2 older cubs were doing fine the last time we saw them. They are east of our boundary at the moment and haven’t been seen for 48 hours, but were last viewed in the company of the three other Sparta lionesses (without the mother of the younger cubs) and the hip-scar Majingilane male. Let’s hope they are sensible enough to remain with the pride…

Thank you James. Sounds like you had a couple magical days. Awesome shot of the lioness on the kill. Of course loved the cubs. Perfect! Thanks again for sharing.

What fantastic photos and update – thank you do much! So lovely to see the cubs – we looked for them on drive a few weeks ago, but they were in hiding in the den and we only saw the lioness . This now completes the picture.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. We were very lucky to have the cubs in short grass and with beautiful lighting. The photo of the Majingilane male was thrown in as an extra as he was only about 400m from the cubs, and his roaring on the 2nd mornings drive prompted the mother to move the cubs slightly, which resulted in them being in the clearing, so i guess we have him to thank…
