One early morning monitoring session in Tembe Elephant Park (South Africa) we found Milo’s two lion cubs alone on the road, as mom had gone walkabout. Initially they were a little skittish – but they soon built up courage. We witnessed the lion cubs stalking the car! They finally ending up in a small tree right next to the monitoring vehicle and the conservation volunteers.
Lions cubs stalking is an incredibly tender thing to watch. While it may fuel a desire to pet wild cats, we implore you to understand that this is hugely unethical and actually damaging to wildlife conservation efforts. Please get in touch to learn more.
