Lions preparing for hunting

We are so greatful to our driver, Stewart, for all that we've seen so far, when there suddenly are some lions moving in the gras beside us. It's hard to see them in the beginning since they blend in so well.

There are three females moving the same way as we are driving.

We wonder what they have in mind ...

.. the male doesn't care ...

.. after a while they get closer ...

.. and it seems like they will cross the road in front of us ...

.. such beautiful animals ...

.. and so mighty to see them so close up ...

.. as they are on their way ...

.. to drink some water  ...

.. and they don't care about us ...

.. but they continue on the other side of the waterhole ...

.. and it's clear that they have spotted something.

We have no idea of what they've spotted yet ...

.. must be something out there ...

One of the lions stops just before the road ...

.. one of the others sits waiting.

The first one sneaks along another car to get a little shadow ...

.. before she crosses the road and carefully continues on the other side ...

Then she stops in the gras, looking ...

.. and now we see it - a lonely zebra far out there on the savannah!

The lions have split up ...

.. one of them checking out on the others ...

.. then concentrating on the zebra again ...

.. while one of the others are coming from another side ...

.. is the zebra still out there?

Our excellent guide and driver told us that the zebra had gone to far from the lions now, they wouldn't manage to catch it. We felt relieved for the zebra, but a little sorry for the lions ... It's a hard life out there on the savannah ...
