Filming Lions

May 23, 2013

By Bob Poole - After spending a fantastic month in Gorongosa, film crew Emre Izat, Marla Hettinger and John Mans leave today for home. They will be back in a few months for more adventure. Meanwhile I will be here. Today I hope to film mating lions!

The Impala population seems to be exploding here in Gorongosa. I was filming this male as he rounded up his harem and chased away challengers. It looked exhausting.
