One of the things that I really love about working at Londolozi is being surrounded by so many people who have the same zeal for nature. Everyone that works here just loves to be out in the bush and enjoys it at every level. Camp managers stop to photograph and appreciate the small things on the lodge pathways, the team is packed with keen birders and baby nyala are celebrated by staff as part of the family when they’re born in the confines of camp. So really it would have been enough just to have got a few staff members together on an impromptu outing into the bush one morning and seen nothing but what we found completely blew us away.
There really is nothing quite like watching cubs where their universally infectious joy and innocence completely wrap you in the moment with them. You’re left feeling unmistakably lighter, happier and this is what I’d like to share with you today in this video. I won’t say much of the sighting as the video will say it all but do make sure you watch to the end because the best part is when the cubs attempt to play with one of their father’s, a Matimba male lion, and it doesn’t quite go to plan.
