Our last evening in South Africa, 2013.

An unexpected game drive…

…produced this sighting of two 8 week old lion cubs.

Twenty minutes later and after nearly 300 photos

of lion cubs watching tourists

we departed due to failing light.

So lucky.

That was early October 2013,

their mother was dead in mid-September 2014.

Until this week we have wondered if they survived.

Yesterday (Saturday) we heard via Facebook

that they still roam the area.

    • Well they did share the same mother….however different sexes. We dubbed them Nosy (because it was the first to come and tourist watch) and Rosy (because it rhymed :-)). Only realised this year that Nosy should have been called Rosy and that it was the male which was skittish.
