Life of a lion

By Maxtours
Another special memory from Kenya. We were in an open sided safari vehicle when we saw a pair of lions - we drove about following them from a short distance away but could see he was watching us. Eventually he flopped down and just stared at us as if to say "just take your photos and leave us in peace to get on with our lives!" It was really exciting to be so close without bars or glass to separate us.
