Young male Lion at Khwai River in Botswana  | Kwhai River, Botswana  |  Yes ladies and gentleman, today we officiallycan say that we’ve seen all animals one would expect to see when go toAfrica.  Well to be 100% honest, we arestill missing the Cheetah, but hey still 10 more days to come.  Anyhow today during our afternoon safari atKhwai River Lodge by Orient Express, we had the honor and pleasure to enjoy thecompany of a young male lion.

It can be one of the sweetest, most tender but at the sametime intimidating experience of your life, knowing that in one second he willliterally snap your head off.  The picturesspeak for themselves right.  He was therejust a few meters away, rolling on his back, falling sleep and waiting for usto leave him alone to continue with his afternoon nap.

So far I would have to say that Botswana, has been the bestSafari experience we have had during this last three weeks. Although, to be100% fair, last week while at Lion Sand Private Game Reserve in Kruger Park, wesaw and got very close to a group of 18 lions (13 females and 5 young calves) …more to come CM

 My trip to Africa was coordinated by the experts at Rhino Africa Safaris, an African based tour operator with headquarters in Cape Town.  Their stellar reputation speaks for itself and is the reason why I chose and trust them to be the partner for this African Experience.  Stay tuned, soon CM by Carlos Melia, and Rhino Africa Safaris will bring to you Small Gay Groups to Africa.
