For those of us who live in places where lions do not, it seems the lion holds a certain degree of intrigue. This cat has been referred to as the king of the jungle, afterall.
When we hold the lion with such high regard, it can be difficult to know how one might respond upon seeing a lion in its natural habitat for the first time. Yes, I do believe our hearts may have skipped a beat or two; however, for one of us it was quite possibly out of fear rather than excitement (and it wasn’t Kevin’s!). I mean, do we really have to get that close? That’s what we have our long lenses for, isn’t it? I must say, lions certainly do command your attention.
We were fortunate enough to have a few sightings of lions. The most memorable for us would be our time spent watching a lion pride of youngsters and moms passing the time on a lazy morning.
