The one on the right did not look quite right in the head at all... :no:



q7.jpg

And we eventually noticed he was quite badly wounded on the left rump... O-/

His brother sneaked away and we suspected he was a bit of a lame encumbrance on the pair... O**


q8.jpg


But I heard later he had been like that for quite a while and was going along fine! :-0



And down near the Sand River a farewell lion cub, so our last day was probably the best day! X#X

We left via Kruger Gate and were VERY impressed by how well that road has been upgraded!

THE END!
