We observed this young lioness chasing zebras out on the pan at Etosha National Park in Namibia. Back and forth she drove the herd of striped herbivores over and over with no chance of catching one. Exhausted, she climbed up out of the pan, walked past our VW bus and perched herself upon this throne. This was one of those rare photographic moments that are very difficult to come by in Etosha, because you are not allowed to drive off road and you don't get to photograph out of the top of your vehicle like I'm used to doing in East Africa. By the way, did you see the lizard on the log?
