I simply can’t get enough of the bush and a few weeks ago I spent some time in the Timbavati Game Reserve.
My first introduction was a very pleasant one. We found one of two Mbiri male lions on a wildebeest kill. Despite some battle wounds this boy looked in great condition. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this male.
The next day we went to look for the other Mbiri male lion. The sun was starting to set and the heat of the day had already subsided. We entered a dry river bed and found a beautiful lion pride basking in the sun.
As the air started to cool down, the cubs started to get active. They were very curious with the presence of our vehicle, but approached with caution.
Besides the wonderful lion sightings, I was fortunate to find a leopard hunting, seeing plenty general game and simply enjoying the beautiful landscape that the Timbavati has to offer.
