Zambia: South Luangua - 6

Posted by
: Helen : (who is currently photographing in, Australia) on 27 October 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.


I spotted this juvenile male lion hiding in the grass in South Luangua National Park in Zambia.

"South Luangwa National Park - located in eastern Zambia - was declared a national park in 1972. As a protected game reserve for over 65 years before that, the park was never subjected to the degradation of unregulated mass tourism, thus sustaining its pristine wilderness."
"The park covers a vast area of 9,059 square kilometers, with much of the game concentrated along the valley floor."
