Behind The Frame: A Portrait of a Male Lion taken at Sabi Sabi Last year

In this episode in the Behind The Frame series, Trevor McCall-Peat shares a lightroom edit of an image of a male lion captured at Sabi Sabi Last year while hosting a Private safari in October 2022.

Sabi Sabi is very well know for its big cat activity, Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve borders the Sabi Sands and is included in the open system Reserve which is open to the Sabi Sands and the Greater Kruger National Park. I personally really love this image. It reminds me not only of the moment this image was taken with that intensity in its eyes, but it also reminds me an incredible morning spent with this male lion and three lionesses that were actively hunting zebra, they didn't succeed, but the interaction and the excitement of watching raw nature was simply incredible. After that, all four lions were still fairly active, moving around and then noticed a small herd of buffalo nearby which peaked their interest and allowed for some really great viewing and photographic moments.

If you are a big cat lover, I highly recommend a trip to this beautiful and diverse Game Reserve, I have no doubt you will really enjoy it. Having said that, its not all about the big cats and Sabi Sabi has so much to offer, not just from beautiful lodges but to a rich array of wildlife to be seen.
