The King's Face


The mighty King of Timbavati, during a late afternoon sighting on our last afternoon/evening game drive in the Motswari Private Game Reserve.

It was an intense experience to witness this wild male lion and his companion resting in the late afternoon, and to photograph them from a short distance.
