Thanks for the updates. Watching all the progress. This is the next best thing to being there

What an exciting sighting! Those little cubs are adorable. I think the mama has her hands full. It will be interesting to see how many of the five survive. Wonderful post, James! And terrific pictures!

WOW! How exciting! The pictures are wonderful and the updates are spectacular!!! I am so curious about the future of these tiny cubs. Thank You very much!

This is truly an exciting sighting and 5 cubs!! What a birth that must have been. I’m hoping that I’ll have an opportunity to see a few of the new additions

Hi James. What lovely pics. Such a joy to see those little faces. Good for Mama! A stout effort. Wendy M

This would be a ‘dream sighting’ for me! Five little cubs and a relaxed lioness in the Maxabene, a favorite place – awesome!

Hi James, My husband and I loved riding with you one year ago with the Smith/Case group. I have thoroughly enjoyed this 3-part series. So much out there we seldom see so close. Looking forward to reading the report on the data collected. Great work!

Nothing more exciting than finally viewing these darling Cubs. So tiny and cute. I’m wishing them the best future.
