“I have been following and photographing Lion prides all over Africa for the last ten years, including Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. This book is the culmination of that journey”
This large format, hardback coffee table book of 176 pages will feature a stunning collection of photographs, celebrating the lifecycle of the Lion in all its raw beauty, as well as a dedicated conceptual art section.
All proceeds from the book will raise vital funds to support, protect and help re-establish ‘The Last Lions of Meru’ in Kenya.
“If you share my passion and concern, please support this project and help ensure a future for wild lions.”

This remarkable book opens our eyes and hearts to the world of the African Lion, of one of our planet’s most magnificent and yet vulnerable wild creatures. Symbols of power and strength, Lions have all too often had their other characteristics forgotten or ignored – their loving nature, their loyalty, how they protect their young, their jealousy, competitiveness and ferocity.
Lion populations face a risk of extinction from numerous threats, including habitat loss due to encroachment by humans. Livestock farmers may use poisons, rifles and snares to remove Lions from their land. In addition, prey species have been depleted by the bushmeat trade, and Lion populations have become increasingly fragmented as a consequence. In some countries it is still legal to shoot Lions for sport.
There are many wonderful wildlife photographers, but George’s images are amongst the most intriguing, thought-provoking and original.
