I watch Safari Live Sunrise (midnight - 3:00AM ET) a lot at night to fall asleep. Last night towards the end, lions were spotted. One older lioness has two cubs. I couldn't really tell (sound was low) but I think it is a male lion sleeping beside the carcass with his paw on top of it.

Towards the end, the lioness with four cubs seen crawling all over her, reached out and grabbed one and gave it a big hug. I've never seen anything like it.

This is the first time I've seen the lions.
Fast-forward to 2:29:20, this is where it starts. When it breaks briefly to go to another guide, they do cut back to the lions until the end.
These cubs are fun to watch.

Lions are always good to watch (when awake) and little cute cubs is a bonus :)

This is the most gorgeous animal to watch. He is a young male leopard lying near a pond, early morning, waiting for terrapin to surface. When the camera zoomed out you could see how he was camouflaged in an area wide open. His eyes are pale mint green in the show, not captured in the photo. His tail is as long as his body.

It is going into winter in dense, bushy Djuma, South Africa ...so the teams have been setting up to film live in Maasai Mara, Kenya soon. This guide, Brent, does several short segments in each drive, shown live twice a day. Mara is absolutely beautiful, with wide-open ranges, gorgeous Shepherd trees and hundreds more animals.

Since they are a "family" channel, all the kills shown are done with much discretion.

They are starting to record adverts during the live shows.
I've never seen a cheetah in Djuma.

Cheetah chases down her dinner! 1:05min

There is no proof that Karula is not alive but she has been missing for over 10 weeks. Many people watch the live show, twice a day, just to see if they find her.

WE pay tribute to the great Leopard Queen of Djuma Karula! 3:03min

A short clip of the most amazing group of lions, lioness and cubs :)

A new adorable addition to the Nkuhuma pride! 1:11min





This is the Sunrise drive when it happened




Start at 47:30 for lion in the road, guide continues up the road to see where the six cubs are going. Several cubs turn up the road so guide moves again and sees the baby. At one point they go to another guide for only a few seconds and back to the lions. Several cubs are using the baby as a soccer ball but mom is in the tall grass watching.

That's as far as I got.

Beautiful silhouette of a male giraffe, at sunrise, in Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Djuma, South Africa.
He is about 18 ft (5.5 meters) tall.

This is only part of the four lionesses and 13 cubs pride. A few of the others are over to the left.
One of the smaller cubs has a zebra tail for a toy :)
