Tour 2, 31. Juli – 09. August 2015 (Migration - peak season) - ONLY 1 PLACES LEFT
Tour 3, 04. – 13. September 2015 (Migration - peak season)
Tour 4, 13. – 22. November 2015 (low season)
Tour 5, 11. – 20. März 2016

1900's there were at least 500.000 lions in Africa!
1960: 200.000 lions
1980: 76.000 lions
2013: 23.000 lions
2015: 15.000 lions
The wild lion population within the next 10 to 15 years unless something dramatic is done about the situation. These figures represent a 95% decline in these predator populations.

In fact there are more captive lions in #SouthAfrica than wild ones. This method of “canned hunting” is completely legal in South Africa. Canned hunting is to be stopped!!!

In respect to these animals, all close up pictures are taken from a distance with extreme long lenses (the super telephoto lens from #Nikon AF-S #NIKKOR #800mm 1:5,6E FL ED VR) and #Nikon #D810. Thanks #Nikon for the best camera and lenses for my conservation work.

Der König verliert sein Reich
http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/2013/04/26/what-will-we-do-when-we-sit-in-the-african-bush-and-not-hear-the-lion-roar/

Löwen, die Symboltiere von Afrikas Savannen, sind zunehmend bedroht. Sterben sie aus, verliert die Menschheit auch eine Quelle der Inspiration.
Kein Platz mehr für den König der Tiere: Afrikas Savannen schrumpfen rapide in dem Tempo, in dem die Bevölkerung zunimmt. Die sogenannten Huntingfarmen in Südafrika wachsen rapide.
Maximal zehn Jahre Zeit bleiben den Löwen Afrikas noch, wenn nicht umfassende Schutzmaßnahmen eingeleitet werden. 

1960: 200.000 Löwen
1980:  76.000 Löwen 
2012:  23.000 Löwen 
2014:  17.000 Löwen 
2015:  15.000 Löwen in Afrika

It’s time for us photographer all to be conservationists!!! 
I do believe that there really is a positive turning point happening. There is such a growing awareness globally speaking amongst the public. I just hope it´s in time as far as lions and other big cats in Africa and Asia go. I think, this attain in my Wildlife Photo Workshops. http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/hightlights-photoworkshop-masai-mara/

Lion numbers have plummeted to somewhere around the 20.000 mark. The king of the jungle is fast heading towards extinction.
In the 1900's there were at least 500.000 lions in Africa!
#SaveSimba  
1960: 200.000 lions 
1980: 76.000 lions 
2012: 23.000 lions 
2014: 17.000 lions 
2015: 15.000 lions 
If we are to protect their future, there can be no justification for the continued hunting of wild lions and the cruel canned hunting business should be shut down for good. 
However, in #SouthAfrica , farmers have gone into the bargain basement hunting business by breeding lions to be shot by hunters for a fraction of the price, in so called 'canned hunting' operations … ‪#‎SaveSimba‬.
But many people don’t know that, or accept it. However, many know it and just don’t care because they don’t understand what the impact of a world with no lions may be. The biggest factor in lion conservation is humans. Check out my good friends Lion Aid http://www.lionaid.org to see how you can help protect the "King of the wild".

yeah they extinct because sometimes people like us are lazy enough even to provide food for them. treat this as a concession, we mistakenly take shots/videos on natural things, animals, trees or habitat and we benefited on them. the Earth is the Creator's expression, and mankind is part of it even baring His DNA and be call as His son/daughter by the living grace of God that is in Christ the Son. nothing is so wrong from doing so, though it means like pointing out others yet for the sake of mankind indeed it does make sense, it is also a portrayal of the soon end of Earth's history. God had given mankind dominion over His creation/creature but we failed and rebelled on Him, though we are God's co-creature in the presence of our dwelling place here on Earth. God did what's best for us "His servants" and though we have responsibility for His creation God showed mercy and grace that is seen long before Christ the Son sacrifice. He also knows our condition, our sinful, corrupted condition that is within our flesh.


25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Matt 6:25-26


The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. proverbs 12:10

The ideal time to to photograph Lions, is the (few) light shortly before and after sunrise or downfall - not only of the lighting effect, but because the nocturnal big cats then for a short period her pupil is completely wide opened.

Breaking news: Tanzanian Government has released population estimates from the 2014 nationwide elephant census.
Ivory poachers blamed for 60% slump in elephant numbers. 
1.)
Since 2009, Tanzania’s elephant population has declined by 60%.
2.)
The final results of the census reveal a total elephant population of 43,521 (±3,078). Compared to the results of the 2009 census, which estimated 109,051 (± 5,899) elephants across the country, numbers have declined by 60% in just five years.
3.)
Malagarasi-Muyovozi -81%
4.)
Ruaha-Rungwa -76%
5.)
Selous-Mikumi ecosystems -66% 
In the 1970’s the Selous Game Reserve alone was home to more than 100,000 elephants. In 2009 survey revealed a population of approximately 45,000, which eventually reached just 13,084 in 2013. The 2014 survey indicates numbers have stabilised at this low point with 15,217 elephants counted over a larger census area.

Increasing human development may have also contributed to the decline in Tanzania’s elephant numbers. Growing human settlements in and around protected areas, coupled with agricultural expansion, livestock grazing and resource extraction, can lead to destruction and degradation of available habitat, and interruption of wildlife corridors.
