Cub update on the concession Article & photos by Nick du Plessis

The wet summer months are always times associated with young animals, with major factors like food and water being plentiful then. With our current dry season it’s proved quite the opposite – the permanent water sources have been a great place to find predator and prey species, and cubs in particular are being seen on most days. What has been extra special is the amount of cubs seen of so many different species. Exciting, from our point of view, is how calm the mothers have been with our presence. Without trying to push the situation and viewing as sensitively as we can, we would like to spend as much time as possible with these little cubs.
