We decided to photographer to take a few photo’s of the activities that is on offer around the dam.  As we were driving from activity to activity we decided to drive out to UKUTULA game lodge to look at the education program with the Timbivatie lions.


Honestly, I have no words to describe my experience, but I can assure you that it was the BEST experience of my LIFE!

We were met by one of the rangers and given a tour of the facility, whereafter we were introduced to the 3 month old lion cubs. Upon first sight I fell in love with these furry little babies!

The photographer started taking pictures and what started as just a quick visit ended up in a two hour visit.  I played with the small cubs and they were just playing along and crawling and jumping all over.  From there we moved to the play pen for the smaller cups that were only 2 and a half weeks old and we were allowed to pick them up and hold them.  Visitors are allowed to interact with the little ones and thats why it is so amazing.   It is just that something deep inside melts if you hold one of the cubs in your arms.

We were very quit driving home, each with their own memory of the experience we just had. I could recommend this activity to each and every one.
