Everyone wants to know, “Did you see lions in Africa.”  Well, yes, sort of.  The only place to get a good look at a lion these days is in the game reserves.  However, they are still quite wild in the reserves.  This picture was taken in Masai Mara, one of the more famous game parks in Kenya.  Notice the big baby look to this king of beasts.  We drove within feet of her, and she finally was aroused, looked up at us, yawned and stretched, crossed the road, and fell back asleep.  Since Kenya made hunting illegal back in the 70’s, lions have had plenty of food to keep them well content, and though there is sometimes an urge to jump out and pet the kitty, I have always restrained myself.
