The Timbavati region is the only place in the world where white lions occur naturally, and until since the 1980s, no white lion cubs had ever survived to adulthood. As a result, there are presently only 3 known wild, white lion adults in the world.

These facts made capturing this image of one of them even more special to me. The pride had finished their giraffe kill and eventually made their way to this waterhole, just as i had hoped. We waited, and eventually these two lions came and lay next to each other to drink...then it was a matter of luck getting the image with both of them staring straight at me, with tongues out. My dream shot!
