We had heard a pride of lions close to camp (Entim) the night before and managed to find them the following morning, just as the sun broke over the horizon to provide the most incredible warm light. The breath was the icing on the cake and gave the finishing touch to the scene. Masai Mara, Kenya.
An elephant calf tried to approach an old buffalo bull and was taught a lesson it will never forget. The calf was with its herd at a watering hold Addo Elephant National park, South Africa, when the buffalo ventured towards the water. The elephant ran towards the buffalo but the larger animal picked up the young calf and tossed it four metres in the air. Luckily, the elephant was not hurt. Picture: Conrad Cramer / Barcroft Media
