I was following this Lion for a few days around Rooiputs and he ended up in Kij-kij.
First day he was hungry and tired.
Second day bloated and fat but struggling to get back to Kij-Kij for water.
Third day he was sleeping the entire day. He got up at around 7pm and tried to drink some water.
He then came and dropped next to my Vehicle. His jaw is "skew" and he looks tired.
I would be very surprised if he carries on like this ?
First post so will attempt the pics.
NOPE, guess i must read the how to page

So finally I can post seems like the size was an issue (800)
This Lion was very tired and seemed to struggle even to get some water.
Maybe 40 degrees in the shade was the cause ? Any idea of his name and age ?
Thanks all the people that helped with posting.
I will add the lioness with some cubs also near Rooiputs

Great pictures Jan, RoelfA and imgreg :clap: :clap: .

I hope we can also bring some special lion sightings to the forums when we visit KTP from the 8th till the 17th of Feb 2015 :D .

Just one final suggestion about posting your pictures imgreg. Don't add the img in front and the /img at the back when you copy the link from Photo Bucket. I have changed the current pictures for you and remove the img's :thumbs_up:
