The expression on this lionesses face says it all. You can just imagine the intensity amongst a pride of 22 lions feeding on a young giraffe kill. It was early morning in late August on the northern tip of Chiefs Island in the Okavango Delta when out on a game drive we stumbled upon this pride of lions hunting. We hadn’t been there a minute when one of the lionesses spotted a female giraffe and her young which couldn’t have been more than a couple of days old. There was no way for the young giraffe to escape and a pride of this size was too much for the female giraffe to defend against. It was over in seconds and the feeding at the kill was pandemonium. I managed to sneak my vehicle within a few meters from the pride as they fought over the kill and captured this image of one of the more senior lionesses popping her head up amongst the mass of bodies. She was disciplining a sub-adult that was obviously getting too close to where she was feeding. It was one of the most powerful moments I’ve experienced in the bush, and a reminder of how tough it is for these animals to survive out here.
