This picture has a bit of a story behind it.

We had broken down two days into our self drive and where waiting for the mechanics to arrive.

As we waited around camp, a pride of Lions, to our surprise walked passed the front of the Vehicle, less than 5 m away.

To say we climbed into the boot of the car as quick as we could was an understatement!

We then had a lovely experience of the cubs coming up to the vehicle to explore, when they left we braved leaving the vehicle to getting our camera gear.

This was when my Husband stepped a little bit to far away from the vehicle and got this shot of the Lion looking directly at the Lens, (really he was sizing him up! luckily they had eaten the night before)

We soon jumped back into the car to watch the Lions from behind glass and metal.

Although seeing these magnificent animals on foot was a breath taking experience and the highlight of our holiday.
