Thanks for this! As a still new photographer I love reading things exactly like what you wrote. It is thanks to a visit to Londolozi that I am such an avid hobby photographer now. Thank you!

Its a fantastic picture and love, how you describe, the complete contentment, for just a small element of time.
When we visited some 2 years back (xmas), it was when the 4 males had come into the area and killed 2 of the 3 cubs, the remains of which we found – was very sad, but this is nature.
This picture sums up what we love about the lions and their “human” mannerisms.
I still have 3 of my leopard photos I converted to black & white (more powerful) in my downstairs loo – oh the glamour…but at least everyone sees them.
Great photo! thanks

Hi Adam, this is an incredible photograph have been looking at it all day! I was wondering how/when the iBooks will be available on SA iStore? Desperate to purchase Leopards & Lions of Londolozi!

Hi Michael, at present I am unable to give you a definite answer as we ourselves are waiting for Apple to offer iBooks in the South African book store. May i suggest that in the meantime you setup a US iTunes account which will give you access to the books. You can do so by following the instructions on this link – http://www.marcforrest.com/2010/04/08/get-a-us-itunes-account/

I thank you, Adam, & the fates that have brought your heartwarming photos into our world so far away in Sebastopol, Ca, dreaming of our return in March. Adam, thank you again–you brighten up my day.

Thank you for this beautiful photo. I love how animals live so contentedly in their world. I wish we humans could live in the now and not worry so much about the past or the future.

I can’t wait to visit SA in 2014.

Thank you for sharing your world with us.
