Lions of Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park


In April, I was lucky enough to be in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park for two weeks. It is a very special place, beautiful and wild. There are lots of animals, you do have to work for them though. The distances are long, and the road rough.

Lions were seen almost every day, not always close enough to photograph, but often they were very close. I am not a big fan of lions, not because I don’t like lions, but because they attract cars, and cause traffic jams. But in Kgalagadi there is very little traffice, so it was more pleasant than in the busier parks. I am not going write about them, just provide some photos to show some of the lions.
