My friend, Jaclyn is here from the USA, visiting us and hopping into our lives here. Although busy, we are forced to take time off and smell the roses as we show her around. Yesterday we took her to a local favorite: The Lion Park, a secured private farm with three prides of lion and assorted game. She loved it!!
So did I.
I thought of you, friends, although my pictures are just snapshots, I think you'd enjoy seeing some close ups of what's in protected areas here. I hope you enjoy!!
...as bookends in a field
Time to move on when the cheetah looks hungry...
Lionesses in the shade
The sleeping king
An afternoon of rest.
A cub eyes us as we pass by.

All animals are fed daily by a staff that are rigid conservationalists, the park is one that charges admission and provides game drives or self-tours (with approved vehicles). It is a good option if you can't get to a national park, or if there is not one close by. Many people do university lab work here, and we actually met one from New Jersey when we went.
I hope you enjoyed this.
