THAT IS NOT THE WAY YOU HOLD ON TO A LADY!

After a few days of mating the Lion female had enough and wanted to go off hunting. But here mate tried to hold on 😊

INGONYAMA

This is the Zulu word for a male Lion but it also means King . After the recent death of their King and their Queen Regent all my Zulu friends and colleagues are looking forward to the appointment of their new Ingonyama!

I took this short video last night at Thanda Safari.

AT NIGHT

Has it happened to you that you drive down the road at night and that you run into some cats?

Well, our cats ‘own’ the road at night and we have to follow them patiently. No overtaking! 😊

A SMALL MEAL

Because this kill was very small the more dominant of the female Lions did not allow cubs on the kill other than her own.

When they tried to sneak in they got a bit of a hiding.

And it got a bit noisy. What a sighting at Thanda Safari!
