The Greater Kruger area has been praised here on the blog many times before.
A while ago I wrote a post about how to come back with better photos if you are self-driving to the Kruger National Park (read it HERE). It’s an incredibly diverse area which beckons you to return and return again!
I am personally looking forward to returning to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve in June to host the 2015 Wildlife Photography Seminar with the rest of the team. Besides the fact that it’s prime game-viewing area, there’s always the chance of running into a legendary Kruger Tusker, or meeting an elegant yet elusive leopard. One sighting that remains special any time in this area, is encountering male lions.
This particular moment was captured with my friend Marlon at my side back in 2012…and shows two male lions (part of a coalition of 4) enjoying a relaxing moment together. We often joke about lions being lazy and mostly being “flat cats” when we are on safari, but there can still be moments of interest to photograph when they are inactive and sleepy. This tender moment of a lion resting his head on his brother’s back, made me smile instantly in the field, and again when I viewed it in Lightroom tonight.
Doesn’t that just conjure up the feeling we have when we are in the bush with like-minded people??
