22 Oct Morning Lion Drive
“Lions have been sighted, 60 seconds and we’re off”
We were fortunate enough to receive a call to a lion sighting not to far from Askari house and we all managed to drop our morning routines at get there in time. We found 2 lionesses sitting in beautiful sunrise lighting that illuminated their golden coated fur.
A sudden shift in wind direction and a blanket of cloud over the rising sun caused a change in the lions mood, they had a kill in sight. Just 50 metres away from where they both lay were a zeal of zebra moving towards them. Only until what seemed the dying seconds before they were going to pounce did the zebra sense danger and gallop away into the bush. The tension was absolutely incredible!
