Beautiful reminder of what once was….

Wonderful look back at the adorable young cubs. Hope that the lioness has continued success in her lefe. Thank you ! Victoria

Always fascinated by the habituation process.
Incredible eye-level photos.

Love love love


James, Those are amazing shots! You are right, with the wide angle lens, Grant must have been super close! The video is awesome.

Hi. Is the lone tsalala lioness and her cub still alive. I haven’t seen anything recent? Ty. I pray they are survivors <3

Yip, alive and well!

Just precious! .. What a wonderful flashback in time, knowing that the Londolozi crew were able to gather a bunch of wonder pictures of the Tsalala Lioness and her three cubs, before two of them tragically lost their lives.
Everyday will be a gift, knowing that the Mama Lioness and her growing cub are still alive and well, and forging on.

Love struck by these photos of the cubs frolicking alongside mum. Without mum around are some cubs more relaxed around vehicles than others?

Looking back can be do meaningful. Wonderful up close images and love the one of the cubs following one another in a row. Up to mischief for sure!

Ir is wonderful to read that the cub is still alive. Being out of signal for nearly three weeks and not knowing what is happening makes you wonder what you will read. Good news or bad news.

Such a beautiful set of images, priceless!!! What is the latest update on the Tsalala Female and her cub?
