If you have ever been to Londolozi or any game reserve for that matter, and you have been in close proximity to a lion, you should clearly remember the feeling and excitement it gave you.
To see these majestic animals in the wild is hard to put into words and is certainly a feeling that I find impossible to tire of.
If you are anything like me, it will give you goosebumps and a rush of adrenaline on most occasions.
On this particular evening it was not just one or two lions which gave me that feeling but 21 lions – the whole complement of the Ntsevu pride as well as the Birmingham males. They all started stretching and grooming one another – which usually indicates that they are starting to get more active – then they started to walk.
I had parked just off the road in the hope that the whole pride would move past the vehicle as they all started to head into the dusk in search of something to eat. The females led the way straight down the road towards where I was positioned.
Being in such close proximity to so many lions is completely overwhelming.
I cannot wait to share a similar experience and feeling with those of you who have postponed until we are open once more.
