If you’re looking for a reason to go out and see some wildlife, look no further than this beauty of a lion cub captured on camera at Singita Kruger National Park.
Last year in July, the lodge announced that two rare white lion cubs were born at the reserve – a precious addition to any family.
The image above was captured by Lebombo Lodge guest George Meyer, and shows one of the cubs prowling with its siblings.
As you can see from the image below, the little guy has grown up quickly – it’s survival of the fittest out in the wild!
“The fact that this rare white lion is seen as far east as this in the Kruger National Park is nothing short of a miracle,” says field guide Nick du Plessis, “and as far as we know has never been spotted or recorded in this area before!”
It’s a sign of the lions’ genetic resilience, he adds, considering that many white lions were forcibly removed from the wild for trophy hunting and breeding purposes decades ago.
