Special sighting with Lioness and her two cubs

Location "Old Main Road" from Mopani to Shingwedzi

Spotted the lioness first and just saw the cubs hiding in the high grass.
After some time the lioness "called" the cubs and showed them to me as a proud mother.

I think she waited till she felt safe.
It was a special moment to see her caring her cubs and the way the cubs were looking at me... curious and in a way it felt like I was the first human being they were looking at...

We were just driving back to Crocodile Bridge from Mpondo Dam (S102) and turned to the S26 dirtroad when we saw this lion near the road.

While looking at this lioness a bit later two cubs showed themselves...stayed for a few minutes and disappeared again.

The mother with cubs were really close...we could almost touch them. I guess it was just a bout 5 meters from our position.
