Now that was a brilliant sighting thanks to incredible teamwork. One doesn’t often see a lion family unit together- Ben and Stephen won the lottery on that drive. It’s heartening to know the Tsalala lioness has so far done an amazing job raising her cub against extreme odds. Great blog!!

What an awesome day you guys had! The pictures of the Tsalala Lioness and her cub, (and the supposed papa) are a breather of relief as well as a moment of joyful tears knowing that they’re still alive and well, and going strong. Their captured day is so appreciated.

Incredible opportunity!
Hard to believe the lion sought shade under the vehicle!

What an amazing encounter. to se the three together. well done team. So proud of the Tsalala female in raising her cub on her own. She makes her bloodline proud.
We will be there in March, hoping to just an encounter. Cheers!

What an incredible experience…..right by your rover, no less! It’s always good to hear news about Tsalala. She has such determination to thrive. The images of her and her cub were wonderful and I’m glad the Birmingham male (father) is still attentive. Great post and I’m happy for everyone.
