Description: It was late afternoon on my first day of my maiden journey to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. It was late afternoon and we stopped at a waterhole not far from our destination of Mata Mata restcamp. I spotted a male lion relaxing under a nearby tree. After some patient waiting he got and and majestically made his way to the waterhole to quench his thirst in the sweltering dry heat.  I watched this magnificent animal drink , and waited for him to lift his head and fired away with my camera hoping for the best result!
