The light was fast fading and we were headed in the opposite direction to that of Mara Serena. Emanuel our driver & guide, told us that a pride of Lions were seen close-by and he wanted to see if we could catch a glimpse of them before heading back to the resort. We didn’t have to drive far before spotting them – a pride of African Lions (below) with sub-adult cubs in Masai Mara. The light was poor and therefore we could only manage record shots. One of the cubs got curious of us and came closer.┬áThe feature picture (above) is a tight closeup of the most curious cub when it came within the 600mm range of my lens.

The curious cub, gave us a few photo opportunities in the fading light and given its proximity to the jeep, we managed a few crisp pictures (above), before it was too dark to photograph. As a parting shot, we took one last record image (below) of the pride of Lions before we headed back to the lodge. What a spectacular game drive it was to begin this trip to Masai Mara!
