Hi Gabriella and Jan,

I did a photography tour with school children to Mata Mata end of March 2013, and definitely saw your lion Fred on 2 consecutive mornings in the same spot, about 25 km south of MM. He crossed the road in front of us each time, and stopped to roar. From the pics his mouth was horrible, just like in Jan's pictures. When he closes his mouth, he looks much better.
Try the following link under Friedrich von Horsten Photography in Facebook for a late March 2013 pic of him:

Thanks and God bless,

Friedrich von Hörsten

Wow Friedrich....can't believe Old Fred is still alive :big_eyes:

Out images were taken in December 2011 and 15 months later he is still patrolling near Mata Mata :dance: :dance:

Thank you for the info :dance: :dance: :dance:

It is difficult for the Lion Queen to retain her dignity!

We have literally just arrived back from the most wonderful two weeks at KTP! the first thing I am doing is booking our trip for next year!
Quick update on the lions, we saw 18 in total. 3 male lions and a single roaming male Mata Mata side, and a pride of 10 lions between Kwang and cubitjie Quap. What a sight! Another three were hanging around the Nossob campsite, keeping us all awake. We will post pics as soon as the bags have been unpacked, and hopefully you will be able to help identify them.
