Hunting (with the) hungry lions

September 17, 2012

We are driving in Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. Suddenly we met a group of hunting lions……

 The wildlife in Tanzania’s national parks are accustomed to cars with people watching and photographing them. They consider almost humans with other features in the landscape such as trees or rocks. Therefore, we found ourselves in the middle of a group hunting lions.

Our driver and guide, Sadi, told us, that he could see, that the lions looked very hungry.  They were hunting a group of zebras nearby………

Please click on photo for a much better view 🙂

What are the predators going to have for lunch today?

Zebras – or us!??

A moment after this photo was taken this lion was so close, that I could have touched it from the open roof where I was standing in the Land Rover………..

Did I touch it? And what was the lions prey that day?

To be continued

in a few  days!

    My suspicion is that you are too wise to try to touch a wild lion … wonderful photos.

    Der er imponerende at være så tæt på de store rovdyr.

    Ha en super kveld, Truels!

    Fabulous pictures and colours It looks as if the hungry lion grew out of the track. Same beautiful shades all over your picture.

      Thank you for your kind comments, Isa! I am glad, that she did not look at me but at the zebras behind me 🙂
