    Thought I share this pic. Some guys bait for them. Some guys stalk them. I think this method is much more civilised. LOL. Pretty easy way to evaluate trophy potential.

    The picture, any many more (including a DVD) were taken near Vic Falls. Walking with lions is lion breading program that is aimed at increasing lion populations. Visitors get to spend about an hour or so taking them for a early morning walk. At the time of my visit we spent time with two sub-adult lions of about 18 months of age (male and female).

    I would highly recommend to anyone who is in Vic Falls with some time to spare to go and experience being close to lions.
