Mark took this video close to Pride rock on the 25th of March. He found the cubs again after a lengthy search much to the delight of the guests in his safari vehicle. The area around Pride rock is very rocky which makes it an ideal place for lions to hide their cubs as it provides safety from other predators. Their are about 5 -6 den sites spread out over the area and eager guides often go there first thing in the morning looking for the elusive cubs.
