The flies and bees were quite irritating.

So many great lion photos! Thank you all!

As promised, I want to tell you my story about a special lion around Grootkolk. I'm not quite sure if this would fit better to the Travel Tales, but as it is purely about lions I guess it's ok here :wink:

September 2011 - The first time
On our way back from Grootkolk we did an early start and when we approached Kannaguass from the north a lovely lion couple arrived at the same time from the south. It was said that she had cubs but we never saw them. He was beautyful and posed for us for nearly 20 minutes. Then he disappeared in the grass and left us happy. On one of the pics it looked like his eyes were not straight so we called him Clarence :)

To be continued...
Looking forward to KTP - Sep 2017
