While we were on our Safari in Tanzania the guide heard over the radio that the lions were by the watering hole, so of course we hurried over in our big land rover. When we finally got there we were astonished to see three cubs sitting there on a hill by the watering hole. It was amazing! I'd never seen anything like it. The three cubs were only a few months old but were already huge, and to see them all together was breathtaking.
We watched in silence for about ten minutes, taking pictures and observing. Then the woman sitting beside me began to shift uncomfortably in her seat and said, "Where's the mama?" Our guide then pointed to a patch of grass not five feet from the land rover and laughed at us. I'm assuming our expressions were pretty amusing.
Then after a few more minutes of us gawking at this beautiful, dangerous creature just laying there watching us lazily as she tried to catch some Z's, the driver started the car and drove us even closer...
and that's when I got this picture.
