Description: After a joyful reunion the youngsters follow the older females for a drink.

Story from behind the lens: The Topi Pride is 30 strong and I counted 21 that day. The young lions would cavort and hunt each other to pass the time. When the older females returned from their napping area a short distance away a joyful mobbing of the moms ensued which was followed by a much needed drink. The cubs instinctively distrust water and didn't drink until the older females arrived.
