Very Special Encounters with Young Animals of All Species
We just spent a spectacular 2 days in Sabi and another in the big cat reserve. There seemed to be young animals every where: baby giraffes, zebras, and elephants.
Our first evening we were treated to lion cubs and the whole pride. They played while walking with their father, nursed from their mother, and did some exploring.
The lions were great and the food and quiet star-filled sky at night was very nice, but for me our second morning was the best. We found a mother leopard and her cubs out for a walk. They follow obediently behind her then when we stopped, they had a chance to nurse. Then it was back to some exploring and games with mom close by. More nursing and a quick clean by mom and it was time to find shade and a nap.
