"In the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle..."

"...the Lion Sleeps Tonight." Of course everyone knows that well known song, and after seeing lions in person, I now know their is some truth to that song. Lions sleep ALL the time! As I said before, we were blessed to see lions everyday but one. And of those days, we often saw them lying around with not much interaction-especially the male lion. However, on one of our last days, we got to see a whole pride of lions walking along. There was 13 of them total, and only one adult male. It was pretty awesome!  We followed them for a long time and especially enjoyed seeing the cubs play together. They were too cute!

Some of the pride.


Female love.



Yes, we were that close. It was a bit frightening at first, but also pretty awesome!


Haha. Gotta love my Dad and Paul!
