A Day With The Lions

First day out on the safari finds us with our guides looking for our distant relatives, lions.


Safely staying in the vehicle we all watch in awe as Roscoe decides first hand to meet up with the king of the beasts.


Opus and Roscoe spend some one on one time with their new found friend.



Later in the day Opus drives me back out to the lion pride for another peek. What a wonderful new bunch of friends we made today.

Time now to get back to our rooms as we don't want to be out in the jungle at night. Next on our plans is a visit from some friends back home and a visit with the elephants.

Absolutely pawsome!!!!! I like our distant relatives very much although I am a little daunted by their size.

You are all so brave and adventurous. Most of us have never met one of our distant lion relatives.

So much excitement. Be careful. But have fun. (Isn't that an oxymoron?)

While I admire Opus and Roscoe's bravery in greeting the lions up close I am so glad you stayed safely in the vehicle with Sassy. xoxo ~Socks

Karl and Ruis, I hope you are having a great time. I hope mosquitoes will bite you.
I never believed you'd actually left me at home. So what if I don't like Africa. You should have at least offered!
Yes, Sassy - they just left!!! Without a word. Didn't even think to ask me if I would like to join.
Males!
