Baby cool!

We have an old ruin on Thanda. On very hot days the Lions love to have a rest there on the cool stones in the shade.

New and cute …

This is a short video slide show of the three new Thanda Safari Lion cubs which I saw for the first time this afternoon. They were a bit skittish, a bit curious, and very cute!

Eye-level, iPhone, selfie stick, and iWatch!

This is one of the occasions when I use my iPhone 12 Pro Max attached to a selfie stick to film animal encounters on the eye-level of the subjects. I used the 2.5x lens on the phone to capture this video. The camera remote app on my iWatch let me control the phone even if I could not see the screen.

The resulting video of these two mating Thanda Safari Lions is looking good!

iPhone, iWatch, and Selfie Stick

I took this video of one of the Thanda Safari Lionesses with her four cubs having a meal. To get on eye level with them I used a selfie stick with my iPhone, and I used my iWatch to control the recording.

Keeping an eye on danger!

This morning these Zebras did not run away when they encountered Thanda Safari’s two dominant male Lions on the open savanna. They kept watching the two cats while moving around them in a wide circle on the way to their morning drink at a waterhole.
