Lion Spotting in the Masai Mara

A lion poses for a photo on a Micato Safari game drive

Right after I wrote this post “In Search of the Big Five on a Micato Safari in the Masai  Mara” I went on an afternoon game drive. Just when we were about to call it  a night, another driver radioed ahead to say that they had spotted a pride  of LIONS! Oh my gosh, it was one of the most surreal experiences of my  lifetime. I felt like I was in an episode of Wild Kingdom. I couldn’t  choose just one photo so below are a selection of my shots from this  evening. Which one do you like best?
