An unexpected surprise

On Sunday afternoon I set out on game drive with my guests not knowing what I would or could find in the heavy rain. It was not ordinary rain either; this was proper African rain, pouring as if it would not stop. So we drove down a few roads trying to find some animals when, out of nowhere, we found our big male lion with a female on a gnu/wildebeest kill. It was an unforgettable experience as he started roaring, letting others know that this is his territory and no one should enter it. This was something unexpected as, during the rain, it is unusual to find rare animals such as lions. Nevertheless, we found them and had a great sighting.
