By Thomson Malekia – Patiently Waiting
Greetings from the Serengeti! This is ADS guide Thomson reporting with a great wildlife sighting. I just came across a pride of lions relaxing by the waterhole near Gol Kopjes. It made for a beautiful picture! The lions were patiently waiting for nighttime to begin hunting as out on these open plains it is easier for lions to hunt under the cover of darkness. It is currently warm and dusty and by sitting along the water they can regulate their body temperature. We managed to get very close to the lions (about 10 feet) without any signs of inducing stress on these animals by our presence, which is always important.
