Photographer's Note

One of the 3000 lions of Serengeti, watching the photographer carefully, maybe sneakily...

Checking the WS, you an see how close we went to those ginger guys.

During the safari in Serengeti, we saw almost 30 lions, alone or in large families. They do not care for or bitterly ignore human species. Maybe you know how it feels: being ignored by a cat is heartbreaking. To tell the truth, being ignored by a large cat is totally destroying. They don't seem to notice you, pretend to live their daily life even if they are surrounded by hundreds of 4x4s full of photographers with large zoom lenses. Having an eye contact is therefore one in a thousandth chance.

Serengeti is believed to hold the largest population of lions in Africa due in part to the abundance of prey species. More than 3,000 lions live in this ecosystem.
