King of the Mara

King of the Mara

Lion Panthera leo

During the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle between Kenya and Tanzania, the availability of prey far exceeds the requirements of the predators. The Mara plains abound with the big cat predators. It is not merely by accident that this area is the location of the BBC’s “Big Cat Diaries”.

This image was captured in the Masai Mara Conservancy, south west Kenya, East Africa.
