South Africa, 2019

In the Lion King remake, Nala has had a modern overhaul. To quote The London Times, she has been transformed from a “long lashed love interest into an asskicking warrior femme.” Beyonce clearly enjoyed playing the role and nailed it.

In my experiences in Africa, that’s what lionesses are – they kick arse. Here is our Nala – not much “long lashed” romance here – just a warrior. My heart beats fast when a lioness is present – they are magnificent, but dangerous cats.

Our thanks – as always – to Kevin Richardson for the access and his knowledge. Photographs like this would not be possible without his presence, his guidance and our long established partnership.
