I agree with o-dog - nice Lion pictures. Issi - this one is a bit friendlier than the big guy above :D We took the photos on the 29 Nov 2011 a few meters from the Afsaal entrance.

Nothing can chill out quiet like a lion can.

Hi Meerkitty :D
Gorgeous lions, I cant tell from your pics but how many were in this pride.

I keep records of all the prides between Lower Sabie and Tshokwane so am very interested to hear more about them.

Regards
Bornfree :D

Hi :)

There were 4 lions - 2 males and 2 females :thumbs_up:
When we came across them, they were all lying very close, so it was like a bundle of lions :lol:

hey kittykat!

We saw the same Male on a night drive on the 21 of October, near the S100. He was part of a pride which had just made a kill.... We watched them feasting on that zebra and later we found the Male with the big wound on his back, directly on the road.....

Great pictures Buffalo Soldier. The Lion might have gotten into a fight with other Lions by the looks of it. But great pictures, Lions are such great creatures, No wonder they are my favourite.

Hilarious! I've never seen a lion sneeze before. Also love how she uses the man-made object to hide.

Thanks, It was really hard.
We watched them for over a half an hour doing nothing and then with in 10 minutes this all went on.
That probably caught me by surprise and started the adrenaline

----

I think that makes sense.
If she was REALLY hungry she would of most probably kept in that sneeze!
