Day 13 - September 27, 2009 - We spent the day at the Ngorongoro Crater. On our way out we saw at least 21 other safari trucks and we knew there was a lion jam ahead!
Sure enough, there was a large pride of 14 lions feasting on a recent kill. We spent at least 30 minutes watching them and maneuvering to get closer to see them as other trucks left.
When the lions had finished eating, they began to walk away, several of them came very close to (under) our truck. They are fearless of humans and our vehicles.
I took 8 short videos and hundreds of photos of these magnificent cats. It is easy to see why they are called the Kings of the Jungle!
