Come Back for Us - is a cry for help.

The new year brought political chaos to Kenya and many people lost their lives.

Tourism crashed as a result of the situation and has not recovered. National park fees and all other tourist income has dried up and the nature suffers.

Kenya is a safe place for tourists now - it was safe for us even during the chaos in January.

If you are planning a trip to Africa - this is a time for responsible tourism.

Hi Shir!

I know someone from Kenya who lives here in Hungary now so heard about the situation. But haven't thought about the turistical aspect and I find it a good thing to draw the attention to it.
The shot itself is wonderful. I love the lighting very much as the shadow covers one eye thus showing the lion even stronger. Details are fantastic. TFS!

Best regards,

Hello Shir,

Nice shot of that magnificent cat. I don't like the way he's looking though, might be hungry. ;-)


Dont worry, male lion wont hunt for food, they just fight for terretory, probably you have enter his area. By the way nice shot.
Best regards,

Hi Shir,
beautiful shot with nice colors and a great POV :)

This is beautiful. I'm hoping that people start coming back soon. As a lover of nature, I'm sure we all do. It's so important to support the habitat we depend on - of which so many take for granted. Trust me, if I had the money...

Beautiful photo, though.
