The King of the Beasts

5 02 2013

While the Lion may be "The King of the Beasts" it was pretty obvious that it was the LIONESS that did the real work in the kingdom. Here are the top shots from our Tanzania Safari in 2009

The Hunter – at rest

27 06 2009

While on safari, it truly is amazing how close you can get to the animals while in your Land Cruiser.  This lioness, with the rest of her pride, had obviously had a busy night hunting and were content to just hang out on the rocks as we passed by.  Beautiful animals!
