At Tanda Tula Safari Camp on Saturday morning we were treated to a wonderful sighting of the entire Machaton pride, with the newest litter of five lion cubs! This litter looks to be roughly a month and a half to two months old, which takes the total number of lion cubs to nine, with the three full grown lionesses all looking fit and healthy.
One of the males was also with the pride and we managed to see some great interaction between pride members. The five youngsters were all trying to suckle, which made for interesting viewing as they all battled to find a nipple. Dad was having very little to do with the youngsters and just sat there and struck a very regal pose. It made for some amazing shots. Enjoy.
