Iconic images this week, Dean! Love the lion father and son and the Tortoise Pan male silhouetted again the sun. But so many others are special too. Thank you!

Great photos as always Dean! Do you have a count on the sex ratio of the Ntsevu Pride cubs? From the sounds of things there are quite a number of males among the cubs? Also, could you brush me up on the ages now of the cubs?

Wonderful pictures. Why is it always the young ones who are so very adorable? Even the baby rhino. Loved the 2 male kudos. A great way to end the week! Now we pray for rain. Victoria

Need rain desperately. See Ranger Alex Jordans blog on why we find younger ones cute. Great read.

Your images this week Dean are over the top! You captured the mutual affection between father and son with queen Mashaba looking regal as always. The group shot of the lions post-kill drink along with the fascinating leopard eye reflection was so unique. Thanks so much, Dean!

Humbled by the comment Joanne, really appreciate it. Thank you.

Dean, What a beautiful set of images! We always have our fingers crossed for our Mashaba and hope she is successful. We are blessed to have watched her from when she was just “Vomba Young Female”! The father and son lion shot is a classic. We love the way the young male looks up at his dad!

Watching the journey and generations of animals in the area is something that I think keeps people coming back and addicted. Its something we are so lucky to be allowed to witness. Glad you have been apart of it. Thanks for the comment.
