Lion cubs playing on the Big Marsh in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area

HerdTracker update 05 Mar 2019 by Serengeti Nomad

Safari guide spotted lion cubs playing on the Big Marsh in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Ndutu plains have been experiencing good rains for the past few weeks.

With thousands of wildebeest of baby wildebeest running around, it is much easier for a mother lion, cheetah or leopard to find a meal for the hungry cubs as well as give them the opportunity to learn how to hunt for themselves by practicing on young calves before they have to go out and fend for themselves! Young cubs learn valuable lessons during this time which is crucial to their success.

The nearest accommodation to the herds: Ndutu Wilderness Camp, Ngorongoro Crater Safari

Recommended safari: Walking Safari in the Serengeti
