It looks like these Giraffes were looking the wrong way. But they were quite aware of this Lion cub which tried a “not so stealthy” approach. The two adult Lionesses and their six cubs were just passing by when this little one decided to go for the Giraffes on its own.
But a few seconds after the Thanda guests on the vehicle were able to take this memorable image (with the Lebombo Mountain range in the background) the young Lion turned around and followed its mum!
