Alone time with the King of Beasts

A week ago, on an early morning drive along the Sand River near Skukuza in the Kruger National Park, this magnificent male lion popped out of the thickets to patrol and mark his territory along the road.

After spending quite a bit of time with him as he walked at pace along the river road, mostly within arm’s length of the vehicle, another car arrived on the scene, and I drove off in order to allow them the thrill of some alone time with The King as well.

    what a lovely outing! it’s so nice when the king is allowed to roam his rightful territory without fear of harm… and so very nice when the humans give him the respect he deserves… wouldn’t it be grand if he could ride in BB’s place while you escorted him thru his territory?!!!
