There are few things more satisfying on safari than being the oft-envied star who spots the quarry first. However this is amplified when it is not just the first spot of the day, but the first ever …. enter Peter Njapit and Peter Kariuki . They found these month-old cubs as bantam-weight carry-on luggage. There are ten lions in this Eastern sector Laikipian pride, almost as many as the delightful pride of eight from Singapore, the Foo’s.
Magnificent work you two, we always love this sort of thing and it just reiterates for the umpteenth time just how rewarding early season is. Thank you for coming also the family Foo. Fighters have a better chance of survival as young cubs than dreamers, and cherishing these sightings is an integral part of any safari lexicon. Adult apex predators only have limited time in the sun and as cubs they are still hugely vulnerable. . .
