These are black maned lion cubs of the Kalahari in Botswana. We came upon a pride of 10, the male, 5 cubs, and 4 females. They had killed a gnu the night before and were headed in to find shade for a rest. The male had already gone ahead to scout the territory and had just called a couple of the cubs to come to him. These two were on their way. The next picture shows their interaction with their father.
