A video taken on the 3rd of March 2014 at Pondoro Game Lodge as we followed a pride of lions through the African bush. Tiny lion cubs followed their mothers as they moved them to another den site. This happens fairly often to avoid detection from other predators like hyena or even elephants who will try and kill the cubs when stumbled upon. The mothers spend a lot of time away from the cubs hunting for food and they are very vulnerable during this periods. Staying too long in one area increase the chance of being found as their scent are scattered over a larger area.
