Lion Cubs Drinking

There has been a fair focus on Lions this week with the release of “The Last Lions” movie trailor featuring Ma di Tau.

They are also one of the huge reasons people travel to Africa, to see these amazing creatures in their wild, natural habitat.  Part of the Big 5 (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo & Rhino) group of animals that has made South Africa and the Kruger National Park famous, you can also see plenty of Lion in the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, Etosha National Park in Namibia as well as in Botswana and of course lets not forget Tanzania and Kenya!

The interesting thing that I learnt this week about Lion Cubs – is that only about 20% of them survive to reach adulthood! I was quite stunned by that figure…..
