Our focus was on spending as much time in the sunken wildlife and birding hides but having heard from the rangers that a pride of 12 lions were nearby we jumped on the game driver vehicle and set off into the bush. It wasn’t long before we encountered a male, 2 females ans 6 cubs. As it was 5:45am and overcast light was very low for photography but the sighting was wonderful.
