Georgewh, lucky you. He was interested in you purely as a tourist, and not for tasting. That stomach tells me he just had a gourmet lunch. Thanks for sharing.

The following pictures are a series of shots taken on the 10th of January 2011 on the H4-2 tar road, just about 2km outside the Crocodile Bridge Camp between the S25 and S28 sand roads in Kruger National Park. We left camp in the early part of the morning and didn’t have to drive too long before we seen the yellow eyes of Lions!

At first we thought it was a Pride, but as dawn broke its light we realised something extraordinary and unusual. We counted 2 male Lions, then a 3rd head lifted up from the tall grass and soon another 2! We couldn’t believe our luck, 5 male Lions together! But then from nowhere a 6th male Lion lifted his head! A coalition of 6 Male Lions sitting not more than 20 meters from us, this was something special!
We sat with them for about 45 minutes before they decided to move on. It looked like these brutes were on a serious mission, perhaps a pride take-over? The only other sighting that I know of where there were more than 6 Male Lions seen together, was the famous Mapogo coalition of the Sabie Sands.

Here are the pictures...

The Lion with the skew face seemed like the dominant Male of the coalition, as he was the only one roaring.Image

A shot of all 6 together

One Male decided to get up and stretch...

Then sit back down...
Image
The reflection in their eyes is distinctive

Then the remaining 3 followed suit including the Lion with 1 eye...

The last Lion looked like a Barbary Lion with his Huge mane...

Hey Bud what a sighting you had there. My son and I saw 6 males together on the H6 in 2009 but they were much blonder than your magnificant 6

We were privileged to see these boys with a pride of 20 on Dec 27th 2010 near Mingerhout Dam.

We were amused to see the sub adult male babysitting his younger siblings!!
