Nice! One of the cubs born in 2010! Or maybe even one of the 2 born in 2011.

Yes, one of the 2010 ones. We were there in Oct '11. We saw the two born in '11 as well, but only at night. Not sure I got any pictures of them.

There are some truly stunning images in this thread!

 

Here are a few snaps I took in Mana Pools last October (13th -20th) - I also posted these in this thread as they are the same pride as being discussed, taken a week or so before the incident:

.....I hope it is OK to repeat them here?

This cub had the "Lion share" of the meal, he kept on snarling on other family members who came close.

@@JohnR he's definitely the most tolerant male lion I've seen. There were two cubs that were constantly battering and biting him, for a good 40 minutes, and he just let them and even joined in the game by rolling around.

Tailing Bro by John Kok, on Flickr

 

The little cub's brother dragged her around a bit with her hanging on to his tail. They were having some really nice playful moments. It was still rather dark early that April morning at Sandibe.

These two guys were smelling something. We watched them for 20 minutes in western Etosha, march 2013post-25370-0-59735800-1369497871_thumb.jpg

 

We sure don't see this on the roads around my house. We spotted this young guy and waited for 11 more to cross the road. 4 moms and 7 cubs about his age. 100 yards from Dolomite camp March 2013.

The final 2 were 3 yards off the road around Namutoni, Etosha. March 2013

Some 10 years ago when on safari in the Nsefu sector of the SNLP we encountered this young lioness holding a shoe. Now this sector of the park is traversed by a public road, or more precisely a track, which is used by villagers on the far side of the sector to make their way to and from the markets at Mfuwe, and usually one encounters a regular flow of people either walking or wheeling or riding their bicycles. There is plenty of wildlife in the area, and at the particular point where this photo was taken their is a permanent outflow from some mineral springs which attracts a number of animals and birds. More particularly there is a resident pride of lions in the area which can quite often be encountered while on game drives. So one asks oneself how did the lion acquire this shoe? Was is simply a discard such as one often finds on roads in Africa, and in Europe too for that matter, or was the owner wearing it when encountering the lion? No way of knowing, but in view of the human traffic in this part of the park one does feel that occasionally someone leaves their village never to return and can never be traced.

Locals are killed in the valley every year by elephants, hippos, crocs, buffalo and occasionally lion As well. So who knows? But then lions are inquisitive too, and sometimes pick up foreign objects to ply with.
