Lioness sighting

On Tuesday the 15th Rangers Lee and Elize headed out on the afternoon drive. We were both looking for a Lioness that had been spotted on her own in the plains that morning.
I found a 2 Track off the plains and spent a good 20 minutes looking for her amongst the rocks, to no avail. She was simply just too well camouflaged. Lee followed in to help look.
Not long after Lee Radioed me to say that she had just stood up from under a tree and was mobile in the area. I returned to the sighting where we were rewarded with a real treat.
The lioness walked in between our two Game viewers, as she was passing my vehicle, she started roaring. She appeared to be trying to contact the rest of her pride. It was an amazing sighting, with our guests bubbling with excitement all through the drive.
