The proud pride male of the southern pride in the KGALAGADI TRANSFRONTIER PARK, NORTHERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA. This image was taken at the well known Samevloeiing waterhole near Tweerivieren Rest Camp.

Photography is a visual art medium and so is videography… I was amazed when a simple video clip of a kalahari lion roaring, that I took during January 2016, has at 15 March 2016 reached 367,000 people, was viewed more than 93,000 times and was shared 1445 times on Facebook! I shared the video in my previous post, but you can view it on Facebook if you want to by clicking THIS LINK .

As a result I decided to give more attention to my YouTube Channel – I will share image slideshows, videos of my excursions and maybe some tutorials every now and then…

I have also added some good playlists on tutorials and the like that might tickle your fancy! I hope you follow there and enjoy it…

Here is a short teaser I prepared for my YouTube channel…


Until next time…!


It was an amazing end to an amazing day that I spent with this lion pride from before sunrise to shortly after sunset… The male of the Rooiputs pride followed the lioness and two cubs from the Kij Kij waterhole to their den in the red dunes of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa – It was about a 3km hike, but the cubs did it all play-play…

When the lioness and cubs disappeared into the dunes at the end of the day, the male announced in the dry Nossob riverbed that he was standing guard that evening, seeing that a coalition of three young males was trying to take over the Rooiputs pride during January 2016…

Turn up the volume to the max, switch to HD… and enjoy this bit of Kgalagadi Magic!!
