Lions ...

The Rhino and Lion Reserve has three predators: wild dogs, lions, and cheetahs. Unfortunately for us, the cheetahs were well hidden when we came out and the wild dogs liked the shade also, so there's not much to see there. It made us very thankful we went to the cheetah center to see them both.

BUT! We got a GREAT view of the lions! They sleep right next to the bus path!

These are white lions, not albinos but definitely lighter in shading than the more golden colored lions we normally think of.

At one point we had a couple lions walk right next to the bus (videos below!). We were instructed to be especially quiet then, lest they jump us. With no net or fence or anything between us and them, I thought that rather good advice.
