    Encountering big cats in the wild is undoubtedly one of the most exciting wildlife experiences out there. And where better to see their captivating behaviour and pride dynamics than in Kenya’s magnificent Masai Mara National Reserve? The region’s lions have recently been made famous by the third episode of Sir David Attenborough’s wildlife programme, Dynasties. Inspired, we have compiled a spectacular portfolio of images from the series.

Tales are often relayed by the guide around a campfire before you bed down for the night, after a hearty meal which has been cooked and served up right there in front of you.
    As ever on safari, I was awoken by one of the camp porters at around 7am for my breakfast. I was staying at Alex Walker's Serian Camp in Mara North Conservancy.
