The mother-cub duo shared the intimate moment for a few seconds. But thankfully, Julia quickly captured it on her camera. Although the experienced photographer has witnessed and captured many heartwarming sights of wild animals, they never cease to amaze her and touch her soul.

“The lioness with the collar was the mother of the cub she played with. There were no males around, so it was interesting to observe how the cubs play and interact with the female,” she described the encounter.

“This is one of the most fun and interesting lessons of nature to me,” she added. “Even though lions were a bit far from the road I was so happy to spend the whole of golden hour with them until the sun went down.”

Spanning more than 5,800 square miles, Hwange Park is the largest national park in Zimbabwe and is “one of Africa’s top national parks,” according to Discover Africa, a website dedicated to African safaris. It is home to more than 600 different species of mammals and birds, more than any park in the country.
