Photographer's Note

I have just returned from East Africa - and here's a photo from Kenya's wild Masai Mara game reserve. There were 11 lions feasting on a recently captured Wildebeast, growling and munching on bits of flesh - uninterested in our prescence in the safari van just metres away. Eventually there were just two left and we drove up even closer - just a couple a metres away from the action - and in this photograph the two lions are having a slight conflict over their meal.

When I was there in mid January, there were next to no other tourists in the parks due to the Kenyan political riots and civil conflict (none of which I experienced or saw any signs of). While this was just devastating for the country and to so many who rely on tourism, it meant that in parks like Masai Mara there was no competition over which van could get the best spot when viewing some big game like this.

More to come, from this 9 day safari!
