After tracking this pride of lions for 4 days in the northern region of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, I eventually found them lying asleep in the long grass in the early morning. This lioness was the only one alert to her surroundings and got up to survey the area for potential prey. I just love how she protrudes from the lush green foliage (rare for this arid region).
