Zambia: Lions at South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa National Park has plenty of magnificent lions, and you get to see them almost on every drive. The problem is – lions spend 90% of their time sleeping (and this number is even higher for males). They lounge in the heat of the day underneath the shadowy trees, occasionally lifting their head to look at the tourists in their safari vehicles or to reposition themselves into more shade. Nonetheless, the lions were spectacular – with big darkening manes and piercing stare.
