The local Shangaan people believe that the white lions of the Timbavati were sent down from heaven.
For me, last night’s game drive was truly a divine experience. It’s now a day later, and I am still struggling to find the words to describe being in the presence of these rare and beautiful creatures.
I keep coming back to divine.
The sun was setting as we came upon the Giraffe Pride enjoying a successful buffalo hunt. We watched in awe as the two whites, with their translucent blue eyes, ate, rested and played with their five tawny relatives.
The bush provides us with special moments every day, but for me seeing the white lions of the Timbavati was a moment of pure magic.
