Wondering where the lions are…

When one goes on a game drive in Africa, there is always the hope to come across lions.  Sometimes they are not that easy to find, particularly during mid day when they tend to lay under the bushes and nap.  I really didn’t expect to see lions on our morning drive in Murchison Park, Uganda but within half an hour we came upon two young female lions right out on the road in front of our vehicle.

We stopped and watched them for a while – always a pleasure.
