Mating sounds!

How about waking up in the middle of the night and hearing the sounds of mating Lions nearby?

When we met some of our guests for morning game drive they claimed that they heard the Lions all night. We drove up the hill in front of the lodge to investigate and found our dominant male and the oldest female of the South pride less than 100 meters from the Lodge.

The Thanda guest were most impressed how close they were all night to these formidable cats.

The picture shows the male Lion with the Thanda Luxury Lodge in the background. The female was hiding a few meters away in the bushes.
