Curious Lion Cub

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Lawrence Noble

We followed a pride of lions hunting in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa, early in the morning in November 2011. The pride included mature females, young adults and cubs. The cubs were more interested in playing than hunting. While most of the lions ignored our vehicle, this cub rose up and leaned on a tree to get a better look at us.

Location: Kirkman's Kamp, Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa.
