Lions cubs were recently spotted playing on a stump of fallen trees, while the adults were fast asleep.
Watch the cute moment a group of lion cubs are left on their own where they discover a makeshift see-saw!
This adorable sighting was filmed by Daniel Bailey, a guide for MalaMala Game Reserve in Sabi Sands when he was on a tour with his guests.
Latest Sightings went on to share the video with their 1.65 million subscribers on YouTube.
The lion cubs in this sighting, part of the Kambula Pride, were left to alone for the afternoon on a stump of fallen over trees, while the adults were fast asleep.
“One cub decided to be adventurous and tried balancing while walking all over the fallen trees”, writes Latest Sightings. “When he reached the end, he didn’t notice that the tree itself was having a hard time balancing, just like a see-saw. The tree tipped over to the other side, with the lion on top! Although the little cub got a bit of a fright, this is nothing lions can’t handle! Slowly, one by one, all the cubs then went and had a go on the new ride. Nice way to be entertained!”
In a previous video shared by The South African, a leopard mother can be seen seemingly helping her cute newborn leopard cubs cross the road in the Kruger National Park.
It is said that Thinus Delport (who submitted the video) had the opportunity to see this incredible sighting of a leopard and her two very tiny cubs crossing a road near Lower Sabie towards Crocodile Bridge. It is not clear when the sighting took place, but it was presumably before SA’s national lockdown.
“This was an extremely rare sighting, and you don’t often get to see a leopard mother relocate her cubs when they are still so young. We’ve been visiting the Kruger for over 50 years, and not once have we seen something like this. This just came to show that patience really does pay off.”
