Tired,humiliated lion

We spent the night at Jacana Camp, a privately owned, syndicated establishment (i.e not for hire but for exclusive use by syndicate members). An early morning game drive  in the http://Sabi Sand Game Reserve  exposed us to various wild life creatures. We came across this lonely lion, looking tired and gaunt. Our Game Ranger, Abel, explained that this lion had been involved in a fight the previous night with members of its pride. The lion was paying us a “no never mind”, which is why we were able to get close to him. He was tired and had not eaten (so we would have been easy prey if he had the energy).
