Lion love 2 – This photo is one of the most heart breaking photos I have ever taken due to the back story behind these lions. As many of you know, lions are very social cats. The pride lionesses work together to hunt and protect one another, the larger the pride the better the chances of survival.

One day two young male lions and a lioness came wandering onto Mala Mala Game Reserve from the Kruger Park, a pride that we had never seen before. As they were all young, my guess is that the 3 siblings were ousted from their natal pride by other male lions and as a result became nomadic. The problem is that because the males were already quite large the time for them to take over a pride of their own was right, as a result the lioness would have to either be accepted into the new pride or live a life by herself. This is exactly what happened, she tried many times to be inducted into the new prides under control of her brothers, but to no avail.

She spent the remainder of her life alone and over time we saw her less and less until, we presume, she met her demise. These photos were taken during an encounter when the three siblings met up after an extended time, their love and bond unbroken despite all she went through. One can almost feel the sadness in the images.
