Male lion crosses river

It’s a happy time for us locals, as we’re about to embark on a spate of public holidays. Starting with the Easter weekend, which (religion aside) is a wonderful time to catch up with family and friends. The break comes at the perfect time too. We’re well into the fourth month of the not so new year, and with the December hols barely a distant memory, the long weekend is the perfect opportunity to unwind and recharge.

We ran a poll on Facebook to find out what you wanted to see today. Of the three options: lions, leopards and hyenas, the lions won with 12 votes, the leopards came second with 8, and the hyenas last with a paltry 2 votes. We’ll be putting Video Thursday up to vote every week (unless we find something outstanding that we feel just has to be posted), so if you haven’t already, like us on Facebook so you can be in on the action!

Andrew Batchelor shot this clip of one of the Mapogo males crossing a river (and you know what cats think about water) to get to his brothers, who were waiting on the other side. The lengths we’ll go to for family! The end is particularly endearing, as it shows a softer side to these kings of MalaMala.

Happy almost weekend folks, enjoy!
