Description: A male lion walking to his pride

Story from behind the lens: On this day of our stay in the Mara we planned to visit the Musiara marsh and try our luck in finding Halftale, one of the most beautiful lions in the park. It was a chilly, cloudy morning but this did not stop us. We found the whole pride trying to take down a hippo at the very edge of the marsh. The hunt was unsuccessful but we still had the privilege to admire this spectacular male.
