Christmas Pride

26 December 2016

It has been a spectacular Christmas in the bush at Sand Rivers this year. Clients have been seeing plenty every day, but the Lions have certainly stolen the show. One of the prides, consisting of four females, have just birthed 9 cubs, and they are all doing very well. They were spotted a week ago after they had taken down a young Giraffe near Lake Segese. Clients were lucky enough to see them feeding for 2 days.

At this stage there were 2 females and 6 cubs. Once they finished off their christmas feast, they moved towards Lake Makubi, where they met up with another Lioness who had 3 very young cubs. The young cubs are no more than 2 - 3 weeks old. I have yet to see these 3 young cubs but hopefully I will soon. For now, here are some images of the 6 cubs with mama and baba.
