Today we had the most amazing game drive!
We came across a group of 5 very lethargic lions in an open area on Jejane Private Nature Reserve nice and early in the evening.

We sat and watched them while they relaxed not 40m from the game viewer, and it was incredible! Observing them as they slept, groomed and occasionally wondered around was humbling, and i was able to get some great photographs of them as they were so relaxed with us.

It was one of the best sightings I’ve ever had, followed by loud contact calls that gave us goosebumps!
As the sun set they moved off, ready to start their hunt, and on the way home we saw Hyena with cubs!

Thanks to Glen for finding us this great sighting; it will be in my memory forever!
