Species: African lion | Location: Central Kalahari Game Reserve , Botswana
It was late afternoon in the Kalahari when we stopped in the middle of a field after hearing lions calling. Slowly, nine lions emerged from the bushes all around us, and we sat in the vehicle as they all checked us out. They spent about 30 minutes with us before heading out for their evening hunt. This photo was taken while on a trip to Botswana with Nat Hab.
