Safaris in the Masai Mara are amazing! The endless savannah, full of animals just doing their thing captivates and astounds the mind. You feel like a shadow quietly moving around in your van, watching and observing everything like a ghost. The animals are quite oblivious to human presence and just go about their day to day life.
We spotted this majestic lion on our 2nd trip out there. There are so many lions to see that you don’t really need to ‘go looking’. Lions are everywhere in the Masai Mara.
This guy was sitting and observing a herd of gazelles. He sits patiently camouflaged by the grass and waits for a gazelle to stray a little far from the herd. Sometimes the wait takes hours. Once he spots his prey, he runs into the clear and thus starts the chase.
That’s pretty wild!
The King of the jungle looking at a distance. What could it be thinking? ;)
Fantastic shot. You guys have certainly seen a lot of the world!! :D
i have seen last Asiatic lion tones of time as i was born and raised in junagadh (Near by town of GIR century). and my uncle used to work in forest department so we got chance to watch them closely. Asiatic lions are small in compare to the what one can see in Africa.
