Pictures of Lion

One might think that lions all look very much alike and one sighting would detract from the next time you encounter them in the wild. These images were taken in various parks in Southern Arica. If you spend enough time to study them closely you will pick up subtle differences in the lions from the different areas.  We have found the lions from the Kgalagadi area to be the most impressive. It is believed that these lions are larger than others in Southern Africa. We must admit that, looking at the pictures, this might well be the case.

Where to Photograph Lion

If you are looking to take good images of lions we would suggest visiting the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park that borders Namibia, Botswana and South Africa.  In order to photograph lion it is best to head out either early morning to catch them on their way to a waterhole after a long night’s hunt, or later afternoon.  During the day you will usually find them in well-shaded areas and is not the ideal time for good images due to the poor lighting and lack of activity.  Happy lion hunting!
