Busy Boy at Rest


During an all-day adventure in the Maasai Mara National Reserve south of the conservancy areas, we were fortunate to encounter lions from a pride we had met before: the Double Crossing Pride.

This impressive male lion, and a female, had been mating, and while we did not see them mate during the brief time we had with them on this visit, we did have the opportunity to view and photograph the lions.

Here, not far from his female companion, the experienced Double Crossing Pride male lion rests under the shade of a large tree up on a hill, occasionally looking at us as we snapped away.
