Safari Sunday: a maned lion ready for his close up

Posted by barb on Oct 22, 2017 in Pictures, Recreation, Travels |

This lion is one of the two brothers that was holding the area around Pom Pom Camp when we visited. Our guide pulled the truck to be about 10 feet away from them. Being this close brings home how hard their lives are. Flies swarm their faces. His canine is chipped. Their faces are crisscrossed with scars and a fresh cut or two. Such a contradiction to the power they emanate and the fear they evoke.
