We were worried that the collar was becoming too small for the lioness - here you can see how tight it fitted

Around the waterhole there is very little shade and as the day was getting hotter the lions were looking for a shady spot to sleep off their big meal

All four lions disappeared into the shrubs and we thought that was the end of our sighting - for the rest of the day they were going to do what lions do best - sleep! I am sure that was what they had in mind but someone did not agree ........

What happened next was really hilarious - the elephant stormed and the lions scattered! Not how one would imagine the "King of the Jungle" to react.

Thanks for the replies everyone! :thumbs_up: MM - I did not even notice - I've got two now! :dance:

That was not the end of the elephant and lion saga.......

The grumpy elephant left and the lions returned to the shady spot

But they did not notice the one behind the bush who also took exception to their presence!

I think at this moment the lions decided that enough was enough - they are after all "King of the Jungle"!
So they returned to "their" shade, despite an elephant still being present.
