An update on Duba Plains’ newest cubs

By March 15, 2016Duba Plains Camp

Previously we reported that the Skimmer pride had the new addition of four furry little cubs.

Some days after that post, we unfortunately found one of them dead. The other three were nowhere to be found and since there was a rival male spotted in the area where the mother and lost cub were seen, we feared the worst. Almost two weeks went by with still no news about them. Then suddenly one morning as the guests came back to camp after an exciting safari, we received the good news – all three remaining cubs are alive and well. They were sighted on Shade Island with their mother, who was trying to keep them washed and hidden from danger.
