The chase is on

First I need to appologize for the quality of the remaining photos. Please remember that they were taken under changing circumstances. The 4th photo was taken through a moving windshield. They do though tell the story


Photo one shows that even with the diference in size, The older female manages to cause the large male to hesitate. Maybe even back off.

Photo two shows the other two running to assist.

Photo three shows the female giving up and trying to run away.

Photo four shows some of the confusion that followed as lions ran down the road and between the vehicles.

Lovely action shots!
by: Sandy

I still cannot get over how open the area is. In most other parks there would be 3 bushes and 12 blades of grass to every lion in the photo!

I wonder if the three nomads took over the pride?

No need to apologise for the pics - they are clear and for intercation images, any pic is better than no pic!
