a surreal moment

We encountered these lionesses on the road at dawn in Kruger Park, South Africa. There were no other cars for miles in either direction. The 5 lionesses walked toward our car with indifference, one yawned nearly the entire way. Upon reaching our car they slowly exited the road into the bush and re-entered the road about 100 feet behind us.

Location: Kruger Park, South Africa
