On my first full day in the Maasai Mara, we came across a pride of lions enjoying their kill from the day before: a huge after buffalo. The lions had killed the buffalo the day before, and the carcass had almost been completely stripped by the time we got to the scene.

The lions were enjoying a leisurely meal, and this male was clearly in charge and taking first position in the eating line. Being my first morning in the park, and never having seen anything like this before, it was a great introduction to the cycle of life and the power of the top predators of the savanna.
