Good morning.....
A big thank you for your continued support, life back to normal today as we leave the bush to go back to Cape Town today. Also thank you to Christine (CookieMonster) for her UA for my crocodile, much appreciated
We came upon the lionesses and grown up cubs at a warthog kill day before yesterday....it was a feeding frenzy with lots of growling....a sight to behold......this is one of the Mothers in between the 4 cubs looking up at us.....(7 of them in total) not much meat on a warthog for 7 hungry tummy's ...more of them another day when I have faster internet...
20mm of rain during the night so will be lots of mud getting out of here this morning
Have a nice day....Grin
