Hi Son Godin,

Thank you for the compliment.

This Pride was spending the whole day at Kamqua WH, moved that afternoon up 100 meters north of Urikaruus Camp (we actually witnessed a failed Gemsbok hunt, and we had to haste back to camp!!!) and the next morning 5 km north of Urikaruus.

Will tell all lions you are on the way, they must stay close to the roads and pose nice for the photos............ :thumbs_up:

As you probably know, this is the end of a lion yawn, but it always looks like a naughty grin to me! :wink:
