King of the jungle

Lion in Kruger National Park

It was a bit frustrating to have so little internet access on this African safari. So now that I'm home, I want to share just one picture before returning to life in Downey.

On our last morning, we encountered a small pride of lions and lionesses on the road. Unusually, they appeared to be hunting, but not for game. Our ranger guide thinks that a new lioness was attempting to join the pride, and the pride didn't intent to let her. Instead, they chased her as if she herself were prey.

It was truly amazing to see these majestic animals so close, in their natural habitat doing what comes naturally. I'll never look at a zoo in quite the same way again!
