Our first up close and personal lion encounter in the Serengeti.   

We easily saw over 100 big cats in the Serengeti.

Lions don’t have a very high success rate when it comes to hunting. We saw 4 prides of lions fail to capture their prey, and here is an image of 2 lions failing to take down a Cape buffalo. It literally scared the crap out of the buffalo afterwards.

Exactly 5 years ago today, I reset my life and hopped on a plane bound for South Africa and Mozambique not really knowing what the future would hold.  

 I’m excited to return to South Africa and Tanzania this upcoming summer with @andrewmklein to hopefully see some big cats play ball, summit Kilimanjaro, and tell some unexpected stories.  

 South Africa was my first experience in the African wild and it holds a special place in my heart. Pictured here is a lion we encountered on a night drive a few meters from our open air vehicle at Kruger National Park.  

 These past 5 years have flown by and I look back with a grateful heart as I prepare to come full circle.  

 All My Best, 
Reuben

Going through old South Africa footage makes me excited to plan my next adventure. Here are some screen shots from Kruger National Park and great white shark diving in Gansbaai. The lion was filmed using a 50 mm lens from an open air safari vehicle so that’s really how close it was.
