Fun Facts About Africa's Lion Cubs 🦁🐱 Lion cubs are usually born as part of a litter of up to four siblings. Female lions often synchronize births so that all of the pride's cubs are born around the same time. In this way, females can take turns caring for the cubs, which will suckle indiscriminately from any of the mothers as they get older. Lion cubs are blind for the first week but can crawl within a few days. They learn to walk at around 3 weeks old and are fully weaned by the age of 7 months. The first weeks are the most vulnerable, and during this time the mother lion hides her cubs in patches of long grass to avoid detection by other predators. As they become more stable, cubs play with each other, instinctively mimicking behaviors and strategies useful for hunting. The two biggest threats to lion cubs are starvation and infanticide. The latter happens when a new male takes over the pride and kills the offspring of his predecessor. The best places to see lion cubs in the wild include South Africa's Kruger National Park,​ Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya! . . #lion #lionking #lioncub #lioncubs #wildlifephotography #wildlifetour #wildlifephotos #wanderful_places #wanderlust #wanderer #safari #safariphotography #safariphoto #masaimara #masaimaranationalpark #serengeti #serengetinationalpark #eastafrica #travelphotography #travelphoto #natgeotravel #natgeowild #bbcwildlife #bbcearth #bbctravel #travelafrica #traveladdict #travelagent #travelblogger #instasafari

15 November 2019 Live #MigrationUpdate Safari guide Frank Gabriel captured the great migration crossing no7 from the northern Serengeti to southern Serengeti! Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge is the closest accommodation to crossing point no7. Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge is beautifully situated, with the majority of rooms having a rare and remarkable view over the Serengeti sunset. With the Mara River only a half an hour game drive away, river crossings can be expected from mid-July to mid-November. During this season, drives are taken in modern Land Cruisers that have the security of the roof but are not closed-sided. The Lodge does not have the understated style of more traditional camps but provides a comfortable experience for honeymooners for example - the size of rooms, bathrooms, infinity pools and G&T's admiring the sunset is the quintessence of luxury at an affordable price.

15 November 2019 Live #MigrationUpdate Safari guide @stevjehnsen captured a herd of the great migration in the central east of the Serengeti National Park. The Central Serengeti, lying at the heart of this spectacular national park, is the most popular region in the reserve for its abundant wildlife, large numbers of big cats and quintessential Serengeti landscapes of acacia-studded savanna. Resident wildlife makes this part of the Serengeti a fantastic year-round destination, but the months of April to June and October to December, when the herds of the Great Migration pass through the area, are when it’s at its peak.

A line of zebras photographed on the Serengeti plains of Tanzania 🦓 Zebras are social herd animals with very strong eyesight. Their black and white stripes help keep them safe by confusing predators into seeing large blended shapes rather than individuals. If you’re planning a Tanzania Serengeti safari to put your photography skills to the test, here are 10 reasons why you need to go on a photographic safari in the Serengeti. Link in bio! . .

Laughing Cheetahs! These two brothers are actually yawning as they bask on top of an ant mound in the sun. There are a total of five subspecies of cheetahs in the world, and of these, the Tanzanian Cheetah is the oldest and largest subspecies. While they can be found in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Somalia; the best places to see them are the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, where the majority of the population lives!! 🌍 Tanzania 📍 Serengeti National Park . .

Tiny lion cub being carefully watched by two lionesses in the Masai Mara 🐱 The Masai Mara is one of the world’s most famous wildlife frontiers, where massive herds of wildebeest, buffalo and zebra still roam free and lions retain their ancient post at the top of the animal food chain. To behold the splendor and beauty of the big cats is an experience that warms the heart of every wildlife enthusiast! . .

11 November 2019 Live #MigrationUpdate @alexwalkerserian safari guide Jeremiah captured the last big group of the wildebeest migration crossing at Kogatende heading towards the southern Serengeti. Some herds have made it to the Mori Kopjes. Southwest of the central Serengeti lies Moru, home to the black rhino. Moru Kopjes is home to the remaining population of black rhinos in the park. Another highlight at Moru is Gong Rock where a short walk leads to a series of Maasai paintings. Just to the east lies the saline Lake Magadi, a great spot for pink flamingos to gather. In the next few weeks, the Serengeti Camps will start their migration move to the southern plains to get ready for their arrival. Set off on a full-day outing with a picnic in tow. You're free to follow to the wildebeest, wherever they happen to be. Link in bio!

07 November 2019 Live #MigrationUpdate An empty savanna with two distant giraffes was enveloped by swarming herds of wildebeest, migrating in search of greener pastures in the Masai Mara National Reserve. November is a good time to visit the Masai Mara to catch the end of the migration as the herds start making their way back down to the Serengeti in Tanzania. It’s a good month for birders too, as migratory bird species begin to arrive in the park. The only downside can be the rain but the thundershowers are usually short bursts of rain in the afternoon and are unlikely to disrupt your game viewing too much. Witness the wildebeest migration in Kenya's iconic Masai Mara National Reserve with HerdTracker. Link in bio! . .

06 November 2019 Live #MigrationUpdate @nasikiacamps safari guide @moodieshots captured the great herds crossing the Mara River close to the Nasikia Mobile Migration Camp. In early November, we would suggest basing yourself in the Kogatende and Lamai areas of the northern Serengeti to give yourself a chance of witnessing a late river crossing. In the second half of the month, it can be a good idea to split your time between the northern Serengeti and the central Seronera region of the park. As the herds disperse, many will head down towards the centre of the park so if you are set on catching the herds, this would be a good combination of locations. This way, even if the herds haven’t quite made it down to central Serengeti, you would have most likely caught them in the north. Aside from the migration, November is an excellent time to make the most of low rates and have an exceptional value Serengeti safari, with no other vehicles. Seronera is usually really busy in the peak months, so visiting here in November gives you a seriously spoiling more private stay in an area that in peak months is so popular (due to its phenomenal resident game).
