Thanda Private Game reserve, Mkuse, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
One of the most enjoyable aspects of our daily game drives on the Thanda Private Game reserve in Mkuse, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa was when we encountered the baby lion cubs. Lions are very social and they ‘greet’ and nurture each other regularly. Here we see one of the cubs ‘greeting’ his big brother in an intimate moment through the trees one morning after a big hunt. This was shot hand held with a 70-200mm lens in October 2012 during a six week safari.
