Description: Potrait of an Acacia Pride Lion Cub

Story from behind the lens: On the afternoon of 14 January 2022 having seen Nalangu, the local leopard our guide, Muli told us the Acaia Pride was nearby. we found them in a glade all enjoying an afternoon nap apart from this gorgeous cub who was on full alert, no doubt waiting for his siblings to join him in some fun and games. It was such a peaceful scene and the light was perfect to capture the portrait of the little guy.
