With all the excitement of the relocation and release of Binky and Courage back home at Sibuya, the rest of the Reserve has received little media attention, but has continued regardless in supplying surprises. One such delightful surprise is three new little lion cubs – which have almost been over-looked! They are approximately 9 weeks old and are only now starting to become more adventurous.
Lion cubs are born defenceless and blind and take much longer to develop than their prey. So at this age, life is all about fun and games – although a normal game of tag or rough and tumble helps to hone their hunting skills for the future. At this age, play fighting provides hours of entertainment and photographic opportunities for those guests lucky enough to see them!
