A mating pair of lions is not so common to see, as usually they will find a more remote and private area to engage.  Now, with the number of tourists in Tanzania, these lions are not quite so private.<br />
<br />
In this case, it appears the male was not so impressed with us watching, though there were several other safari trucks at the location in the center of the crater. <br />
<br />
He turned to us with something less than a happy smile!  It was nice to see a healthy aged male in Tanzania, spreading his DNA.  Too often, hunters kill these full-grown lions.<br />
<br />
Awesome and real.<br />

Love Nature!

You will be impressed with the

very nice accommodations.

Daily Timeline

Our basic daytime wake-up call is 5:30 am. 

Bright and early!  But not so bright.  The sun begins to rise at 5:40 am. 

We meet in the restaurant and have coffee and a light breakfast.

Then it is time to load our gear into the safari truck.

We head out each morning shortly after 6, and get out shooting right away. 

Most locations where we stay are inside the National Parks. 

Lunch and breaks will be taken during the drive, in most

cases. From there we game drive the entire day, and we stop back at the

lodging around 6 pm, at dusk.  These are long days,

giving everyone a great chance at thousands of images.
