And now we are finally at that time, one of my last African safari posts (hey, it only took 5 months) and I am going to cap this off with one of my favorite mornings – Lions of the Masai Mara.

Luckily on our last morning on an early game drive we spotted two ostrich who had been taken down by a pride of lions. It was quite chilly even though it was early July but we stayed for more than an hour watching the magnificent creatures – large adult males, females, and cubs. Take a look:
