The cubs’ names are Rudo (“love” in Zulu, pronounced ROO-doh), Busela (“happy and independent” in Zulu, pronounced BOO-sayla), Pelo (“heart” in Sotho, pronounced PEE-lo), and Nobuhle (“the beautiful one” in Zulu, pronounced no-BOO-sche).

The cubs will be out in the African Savanna from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, weather permitting.
