Missing Tsalala lion cub found

Posted by Anita Froneman on 27 March 2020

The Tsalala lion pride, which lives in the greater Kruger area, has captured the hearts of many visitors. There is, however, only one lioness left in the pride and she recently had a beautiful little cub.

Rangers of the Londolozi Private Game Reserve have been tracking the two, but lost sight of the cub and feared the worst. The lioness was spotted in a clash with a clan of hyenas on Wednesday, 23 March and the cub was nowhere to be seen.

Game ranger James Tyrell went looking for the lioness and her offspring and found them both alive and well in the River Sands area.

Take a look at the joyous moment:
