During the summer on 2013, I went on an african safari adventure. One of my childhood dreams was to see the african animals they show in Lion King. Who doesn’t right? Anyway, I cherish those three days i spent shooting and filming lions, giraffes, elephants, hyenas, baboons, impalas, gazelles, rhinos, hippos and much more.

So, what do you think ?
