After hearing that the Plaque Rock Female might have moved her cubs to a new den we decide to head there on our way back to camp on a windy and cloudy morning. To our surprise we find the mother resting on the rocks near to the entrance to the den. This was the den that she used for her first litter of cubs.
Shortly after settling down and getting ready to wait for a while for the cubs to come out, one of them pokes its head out from a crevice. We then enjoy a phenomenal sighting of the three of them out on the rocks while the mother grooms the cubs and then nurses them before moving off into the shade nearby where we no longer had a view of them.
Enjoy this week’s Virtual Safari…
