Gary just spent a week in training in Ghanzi at the Tautona Lodge (which means Big Lion). So, sort of cheating as they weren’t in the wild but behind a fence. Still, great shots- closer than we’ll probably ever get. Notice the black manes- unique to Botswana- they are called- surprise! black maned lions. The one on the bottom looks like he wants Gary for lunch.
But fear not,these lions are extremely well fed and cared for!
