African Lion Cubs in the Masai Mara

I’m trying to catch up on sharing some images and events.
Here’s a few images of African Lion cubs in the Masai Mara taken during the photo tour I led to Kenya in August/September of 2017

Unfortunately the Mara is being ruined by the encroachment of livestock grazing and the poisoning of wildlife by the locals.  The famous March Price was poisoned by locals a few years ago and these lions are now found further inside the Reserve.  There are dozens of new camps and the Mara is overcrowded with vehicles and many are driven by inexperienced guides who care nothing about the well-being of the animals.  The Mara is not like it used to be and I am glad that I was able to see it the way it once was.
