We took instructions to be quiet as we walked. A short while later, we stopped and were told to not make any sudden movements. We stared in beneath the underbrush and gradually I began to see a pride of lions lazing under the shade, not 50 meters in front of us! We had stalked the Mwamba pride! There was nothing between us and the pride but flat ground. We lined up and took 10 minutes to observe the pride. There were 2 females to our right, 3 more females in the middle of the line, a large male to the left and a couple of young males in the background. The pride was reported as 13 strong, but we actually saw only 8. Where were the others you might ask – we kept looking behind ourselves – of that you can be sure.
