He is young, and hungry.
We watched this young male wander. constantly turning and looking for his family. it may be that the pride decided to turn on him, and send this guy off to fend for himself.
Here, he picked some high ground to get a good look. At some point he will begin to look for hunting partners, and a group of new females to mix with.
We wish him the best, and hope the species of lions survive the hunting onslaught happening now in Tanzania. Greedy hunting outfitters, politicians, and parks management are making a fortune - allowing idiot hunters to come in and kill all the seasoned males.
Truly this practice is a disgrace to the wildlife, and the country of Tanzania.
