Who goes there?

Pamushana | September 2016

The tracking team had devoted hours to tracking a coalition of male lions in thick mopane woodland, and once they’d spotted them on foot they called us, hopped on our vehicle and guided us in to position. But the lions had moved off a little from where they’d left them, and we scouted around to find them. This is the moment when we did – you can see how this male is looking slightly alarmed and has locked his stare on to me. He soon settled down and relaxed again. Can you spot his brother in the background?
