I was the first time I saw the new Lion cubs of the oldest Thanda South Pride female. The mum of the two youngsters is quite shy and likes thick bush. Bheki and I were on our way to take some pictures on the Thanda Mduna Royal Reserve. As we approached the fence line to this new part of Thanda we spotted the female with her two new cubs and their two older brothers. (see also the blog message https://thandablog.com/2014/03/01/bush-disco). I got a few shots of some of the family members before all five of them disappeared into a drainage line.
These are my two favorite images from this fast photo shoot 🙂
