Eight young lion cubs were spotted on the prowl at Kruger National Park!


Kruger National Park, South Africa (29 August 2022) – A video of eight young lion cubs is being shared online… and giving us all the feels.

“Edward the Guide” has become quite well-known on social media with his photos, videos and posts of South Africa and our beautiful wildlife. In his most recent post, the passionate wildlife guide spotted a pack of eight young lion cubs out on the prowl.

“Kruger National park youth league in a jubilant mood after a successful and peaceful elective conference this morning at Skukuza.”

Lion Cubs are able to follow their mothers at about three months of age and are weaned by six or seven months. They begin participating in kills by 11 months but probably cannot survive on their own until they are two years old. Although lionesses will nurse cubs other than their own, they are surprisingly inattentive mothers and often leave their cubs alone for up to 24 hours.
