    Thanks everyone for the comments. Stokes - yes it is a class place and amboseili too. Im planning a return trip for january next year if i can manage it. I would love to spend 10 days in the Masai Mara and serengeti this time instead of just 4 days.

    what they said ... also the eyes look a bit soft on the first one, but that could be the crappy screen on my work laptop.

    (incidentally i read the title first time as 'lions in tesco' :LOL: )

    Cheers Dean. Yea loads of images that i am trying to get time to sort through. There is some on the birds section already.
    Kenyaitis is true, unfortunately we missed out on cheetah and leopard when we were there so that is my perfect excuse to have to go back;)
