Towards the end of December 2012 we saw these lions at the Batulama waterhole and signboard.

…..then one of them came closer to the road!

Both now right in front of BATULAMA signpost pretending not to see me!

Image

Then one of them became interested in what I was doing!

FMJ,

Great series of lions shot at Batulama water hole. :clap: :clap: :clap:

The lion below welcomed us Rooiputs campsite in Dec 2013. I am not sure if he is the Mufasa Jnr or his brother Ash. We just called him Goldilocks :thumbs_up: :

Thank you Son godin for posting those great pictures here! I must (again) say that I do not want to share a camp site with this tough looking male lion. FMJ
