A Tender Hug

Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

The first goal every morning of the safari was to locate the Xinii pride. Sometimes they were very near where we had left them the day before, but sometimes they had hunted during the night and may have traveled quite a distance away. The early morning hours were often a time when we were able to enjoy the interaction between the rambunctious cubs and the pride lionesses. One of the lionesses was barren, and she took on the role as the fun-loving aunt always being available to play with the rambunctious cubs. Photo © copyright by Brian Divelbiss.
