Zhayynn James: " The Blonde Brothers bask in the glow of the morning Ndutu sun. Positioning the vehicle is important is part of the creative process in wildlife photography and here I sought the permission of the other photographers in the vehicle and requested our driver/naturalist to park the vehicle in this spot, so we could get both lions at eye level, and one behind the other. This allowed us to play with the depth of field to make images like this. "

These big lions just leave me with a sense of awe and I feel profoundly touched whenever I see them and work with them in the wild. How absolutely magnificent "

Cameron Yarrow: " The Rock Star


The Kopjes in the otherwise empty Serengeti landscape were our key point of focus the other week. The lions spend a lot of time on these rocks as it gives them a good vantage point to spot prey. It also works nicely for the photograph because it means you can be looking up at the lion with a plain backdrop.

When we arrived at the Utafiti Kopjes early one morning and saw this stunning male lion lying on the top, we knew it was a big moment. For the next hour it was a matter of waiting, but always being ready. It was nearly 8am when the lion spotted an impala and quickly stood up and left his post. I got lucky with the lens I had on, just as it whole body came into the foreground it filled my frame.

The high angle of elevation, the podium-like rock and the wind rushing through it’s mane all work together to amplify the lion's rockstar-esque looks. It’s a beautiful animal and to have spent three hours all alone with it is something I will remember forever. "





Cameron Yarrow: " On a Mission - #worldlionday


Spending the last few days alone with the lions in the Serengeti was incredible. Africa is full of different types of wildlife but an encounter with a pack of lions, to me, is a little more special than any other.

Thankfully I was using remote controls in this situation and wasn’t lying there myself. But you still cant escape the nerves, especially when the lioness starts sniffing your camera.

It's important we have days like this to celebrate the conservation efforts being made all around the world, and to spread awareness that these efforts must continue.

The @Printsforwildlife initiative is still running and is a superb way to get involved in helping to support national parks all around Africa in a time like this. "

Zhayynn James: " A lioness keeps a close watch as her sister sister stalks a reedbuck in the tall grass. I was less interested in the hunt and more interested in the potential of getting this image of her, backlit by the evening sun. In the end the hunt was a failure, but this image was a success.

Recently watched a show called Lion Gangland, about the Vumbi Pride and their two dominant males C-Boy and Hildur. In the show, the antagonist coalition males are called The Killers. Knowing many of you were following lions back then, is The Killers the real name of the coalition, or something they came up with for the show? Certainly doesn't sound like your typical coalition name, is why I ask. I have searched for them, and only come across references to the show. The two pride males, C-Boy and Hildur were really big incredibly gorgeous males, with long, thick, beautiful manes. Shocking how hard life is for those Serengeti Desert lions, and still they endure, and are a successful pride. Thank you in advance, for your help!!

When I lowered my camera close to the ground this curious lion decided to get a closer look.
