Karula is an awesome Mama, she is about 11-12 years old and until 2015 New Year she had no lost a single cub! For those who don’t follow the #safarilive team, Karula has a cub about a year ago and it was all very exciting. Unfortunately about 10 others safari cars wanted to see the little cub as well. With so much noise with all the cars and the people (who SHOULD have been silent, mainly children screaming … What the hell parents?!) the little cub was naturally curious, came out and was killed by Hyena.
It was devastating, you could tell Karula was in shock herself, she had never lost a cub before! Any-ways because of the situation there were strict rules placed upon the car and the guides. There are not allowed to be more than three cars at any sighting. With the birth of these new precious cubs and the disaster that happened last year, NO ONE is allowed near Karula or the cubs for at least the next two weeks and I think that is fantastic!
