We’ve been trying to see some lions in Makalali but they had proven elusive. Thankfully we’ve had some awesome rhino and elephant sightings in the meantime.
But the lions made it worth the wait (and an awesome first lion sighting for Grimbil). It’s only the second time I’ve seen a full adult male. Check out the mane:
He was with a female from another pride (very Romeo and Juliet), and our guide said they are a breeding pair.
They make a lovely couple.
After a while they seemed to get bored/annoyed with our paparazzi act. They definitely looked like they were over the attention:
Eventually they got up and looked for some privacy. Still, an awesome sighting!
