Roar of the Kalahari - Male Lion
Photographer: Sylvia J. Zarco
Location: Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Botswana Africa
Story: 
This adult male lion is big and strong with the characteristic dark mane of a Kalahari lion. His roar can be heard up to 5 miles into the distance but from a few feet away, you don’t hear him as much as you feel him reach deep into your soul, awakening primal senses that have laid dormant for generations.
