Lions of Africa – Lords of the savanna

Photography by Valji Varia Outstanding encounters with lions in South Africa, Kenya and Namibia. Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve shares a 50km unfenced border with the Kruger National Park this private reserve is second to none in terms of wildlife encounters. Due to the high degree of habituation the reserve offers outstanding photographic opportunities, particularly of the elusive leopard. The valuable water source supplied by the Sabie and Sand rivers ensure that this diverse land sustains one of the highest concentrations of animal species to be found anywhere in Africa. Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya The Mara is the northern most section of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, which plays host to the great migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle in search of fresh pasture. The terrain is primarily open grassland dotted with the distinctive acacia trees, drainage lines, and the Sand, Talek and Mara Rivers. Game viewing is outstanding in the reserve with dense concentrations of herbivores, carnivores and avian species make the Mara the prime safari destination. Etosha National Park, Namibia Etosha National Park First established in 1907 the Etosha salt pan desert dominates the park and briefly fills with water in the summer, attracting pelicans and flamingo. In the dry season winds blow over the hyper saline conditions of the pan and carries minerals to the soil downwind. Animals concentrate around waterholes in these challenging conditions and such congregations offer exceptional opportunities to observe animal behaviour. Source
