After a breakfast stop on top of an escarpment overlooking the Mara Triangle, during our Big Cats & Tuskers photo safari, we found an adult lioness high up in a tree.

This unusual scene produced some great images but we were all thinking the same thing... she has to come down!

As luck had it we didn't have to wait for too long. Positioning ourselves, based on the angle of the tree, the lioness came down to a flurry of shutter clicks.

An amazing sighting which produced great images allround.
