The South African Predators Safari: Day 10

Unfortunately, every great safari has to come to an end, but luckily, no great safari need stop end in disappointment!  What a final day to end off with!  A pride of 8 lions were out and about early in the morning, moving around and playing with each other. The beautiful morning light didn’t hurt one bit, as the cameras started off on the right note.  Shortly after these lions, we found a female leopard and her 2 young cubs, around 12 weeks old.  She was moving them from the site of her last kill, to a new, safe den site.  We were lucky enough to catch them on the move, and got plenty of opportunities to photograph them out in the open.  What a privilege to see these little balls of fluff and spots running around, trying to keep up with mom.  We then decided to stop for a civilised cup of tea and coffee, and a couple big male elephants came down tot he river for a drink. It is awesome when it all comes together.  It really was an amazing safari, with a great group of guests!
