Lion Cub on the Prowl

Lion Cub on the Prowl, Olare Orok, Masai Mara, Kenya This tiny little lion cub kept leaving his mother to get a better look at us. He’d make a bit of a half-hearted charge and then return back to her. We were in the Olare Orok Conservancy which is a private concession on the northern border of the Masai Mara in Kenya.
