King Nguvu. A beautiful lion, in his prime, showed us on this night that nature is cruel and overconfidence can be deadly out in the wild. We followed him for hours this particular evening as he responded to a roar from his neighbours’ territory. A territory where the infamous and deadly Birmingham coalition of two reigns. We left him as he moved further and further into enemy territory. Three days later his remains were found where we left him. Nobody will ever know what his final hours were like, or what drove him into their territory and ultimately to his death. But the last images of him will live forever as a reminder of his magnificence.
“through a lens you witness the majesty of nature,
and you cannot help but want to preserve it,
because soon it will be gone”
