Tour Of Uganda I. – Following The Lions

Our excitment turned to disappointment when we realised that our eyes had been tricked with the illusion of a lion.  Providence had sent us a dog instead.

This is not a lion

No way around it, the trip seemed to be “lion-less” for us. Until we came across a few solitary trees, and there they were.  Escaping the wet grass, the recently fed lions were lazily wallowing under the crown of a tree, posing in truly acrobatic positions. Seeing that they were not interested in us, we took courage and dared to jump onto the roof of our jeep to have a perfect view. After all, they are the Kings of the Animal Kingdom.
