On a recent trip to town, I bumped into two magnificent male lions which had moved in from the west.
The scene was very special, as the sun was slowly appearing over the horizon while the two large males slowly trundling down the main road.
They were both in fantastic condition and were actively spraying urine and roaring to advertise their presence. I managed to get a few good shots of them as they made their way down the road.
Dominant males travel vast distances when marking their territory to ensure there are no intruders venturing into their prized pieces of property.
What a way to start the morning, and this just off our entrance road!
