When I first captured this photo, my first thought was of a monarch contemplating the endless expanse of his kingdom. The fact that it was taken in the Serengeti, the Masai word for the endless plains, further confirmed the title for this portrait.
I find it fascinating how an animal that is pure bulk and muscle, ferocity, strength and sharp intelligence can also be viewed as a calm, serene and wise individual.
The contrast between the two sides of a lion is enthralling - to watch a hunt early in the morning and then witness a father display patience and tenderness towards his young cubs who are pouncing on his nose and chasing his tail.
In the bush, so many are in a rush - trying to tick off as many animals on their list as possible. But if you just slow down and spend a couple of hours at a sighting, you’ll witness behaviours that you never thought that animal was capable of exhibiting.

Why Lewa Wildlife Conservancy?
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a private reserve in the centre of Kenya. Originally founded as a rhino sanctuary in 1983, Lewa's rhino population has grown from 15 founding individuals to over 169 rhinos today. Lewa now holds 14% of Kenya's rhino population and is a leading pioneer in rhino conservation. By providing a suitable and safe habitat for threatened wildlife, Lewa has also enabled other key African species to thrive, including the critically endangered Grevy's zebra, elephants, lions, wild dogs, cheetah, the critically endangered Pancake tortoise and many more...
I have a masters in Wildlife Conservation and my thesis investigated black rhinos. I spent 7 months researching the black rhino population on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and I worked with some of the most inspiring, passionate and amazing people that I have ever met. I have witnessed first-hand the incredible work that is conducted on Lewa: vital scientific research, cutting-edge anti-poaching strategies, working closely with the local communities and providing educational outreach programmes to the surrounding schools. Lewa is truly a catalyst for conservation.
20% of all profits will be donated to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, specifically to the Research & Monitoring Department - my home for seven months, and a department whose work is vital for the conservation of several critically endangered species across the landscape.
