It doesn’t get much better than following a hunch and after an 11-day-long search, finally finding a lion’s den. After the arrival of the Ndzhenga Males, the majority of the Ntsevu Females have been seen mating with them and now the time has come when they have all given birth. We knew that one female gave birth in November, but had been keeping her cubs east of our boundary and then in the Sand River.
But after seeing a female going back and forth into a steep drainage line we were unable to find her cubs until we hit the jackpot.

Hi Sean, that was absolutely awesome to watch those bundles of fur competing to get a nipple so that they can drink. So so precious and so glad you found the den. Mommy seems to be quite content with these 5 adorable cubs.
Fantastic sighting–fitting reward for your patience and persistence.
Absolutely gorgeous. If there is a cuteness scale they’re right off the top!
What a way to start my day with the 5 adorable cubs. What a glorious find. Thanks!
What a magnificent and uplifting gift. Thank you
It’s touching to see this born free lioness and her incredibly cute cubs so close and at the same time so relaxed! One of the greatest wonders of natural world for sure… thank you!

Sean, That is one of your best videos ever! It never spaces to amaze us that there is such trust between the Londolozi Rangers and the lions and leopards. This video allowed you to be so close with the mother knowing you were safe and visible.
Sean, you have the best job! What a scene my goodness. Such cuteness.
Nothing better than a litter of lion cubs! Love their antics.
