The Rhino Lion Nature Reserve is situated in the Cradle of Humankind World heritage Site, 50 km from both JHB & Pretoria. We spent the day at the Nature Reserve navigating our own Safari until we reached the animal creche.
After rigorously washing my hands and having them covered with sanitiser, I entered the creche to get closer to the little white lion cubs.
Beautiful little creatures they are.
The lion cubs were super cute and near-harmless that small. Following my visit with them I was lead to the cheetah. To be very honest, I was quite scared. My nose had blead earlier in the day, due to the scorching African heat, and I was somehow convinced that the cheetah would be able to smell it.
My fearless mum got closer to the cheetah first and it started licking her face! They cuddled for a bit and it gave me the reassurance to proceed.
What an experience it was!
