    •Paw kisses• 
It can be 40 deg celsius outside and the lions will often lie touching each other. Its something I’ve always found fascinating and perhaps has something to do with social bonding. It’s no different when I’m there with them. I’ll be sitting, doing some emails on my phone or something similar when out of no where a paw comes reaching my way. Only thing left to do is kiss it.

    My two favourite times of the day are referred to as the golden hour by photographers. It’s the period shortly after sunrise and just before sunset, where the light is more golden and softer making it ideal for taking great photos. It’s also the time of day when it’s cooler and lions are much more active. Lions don’t like the heat much and neither do I. 📸 @jackiewildphoto

    It’s been a while but today I’m hitting the open road with Ginny, Livy and Vayetse.  Come with us and learn about the kinds of poo that really get our hearts racing.  And 3 out of the 4 of us end up having a good roll in it! (You’ll have to watch to see which three!) #LionWhispererTv link available in my LinkTree bio above.  And don’t forget to take advantage of our weekend rules; #digitaldetox #hugatree #sunshine and special time with family. Have a great one!

Lions enjoy vantage points where they can sit and survey the surrounding territory.

    Got to love this. Driving to the sanctuary today I was stuck in peak hour traffic. 🐘 🐘🐘. The guy in front bullies the guy next to him and then the bullied guy turns around and try’s to intimidate me probably because he felt embarrassed with me witnessing the whole scene! The more time you spend around animals the more you see the similarities they have with us. Have you ever deflected the attention onto someone else because somebody picked on you? #artofdeflection #funnymoments #elephants #worthmorealive #kevinrichardsonfoundation

    I’m always humbled and  honoured to be in the presence of H.S.H Prince Albert II and H.S.H Princess Charlene of Monaco. 
To top it off I was asked to be in this photograph alongside them and my good friend David Yarrow, whilst an impressive portrait of Gandalf, taken by the man himself, looks on. Last week I was whisked away from the sanctuary, at short notice, to attend this exhibition opening and was so happy that both the patron (H.S.H Princess Charlene) and ambassador (David Yarrow) to my foundation got to meet up and hear me chat about the @kevinrichardsonfoundation & all things lion & the fight they face both in captivity & the wild. With these great people on board and behind the cause the @kevinrichardsonfoundation is bound to do good things for lions in the world. The exhibition ends the 2nd Nov.

    Vayetse and me deep in conversation. The deeper language we speak is sans words. Personally I believe we all have an innate ability to communicate with animals. It’s just that with modern living and the digital noise we are immersed in daily, we’ve blocked it out. That’s why it’s incredibly important to disconnect from technology, go outside and talk to nature. We need to fall back in love with nature to protect it because after all is said and done, we will only protect what we love. Remember that all relationships human and animal take time, patience, perseverance and commitment. Please bear this in mind when wanting to touch animals (not just wild ones) on a whim. Animals don’t work that way. #disconnecttoreconnect #digitaldetox #reconnectwithnature #instantgratification 
Thanks again to the wonderful @jackiewildphoto for capturing this moment which is not always easy to see in a picture.

    Running a sanctuary that is home to 26 lions and many other large predators requires money to look after their needs properly. I used to feel awkward talking about it but nowadays feel totally comfortable with it. @mercedesbenzsa has supported me for the past two years by supplying me with a wonderful #gwagon to use. Needless to say the past two years have been trouble free motoring, with a vehicle that is extremely good looking and truly capable offroad. It has allowed the money that was been ploughed into my previous vehicles’ maintenance to be put towards maintaining the sanctuary and help pay its ever increasing vet bills as the animals in my care all grow old with dignity. Thank you @mercedesbenzsa for all you do! #strongerthantime #gwagen #gclass #4x4 #kevinrichardsonfoundation #mercedesbenz #lion

    Melanistic leopard - aka Duke. 
Earlier this year a black or melanistic leopard was photographed in Laikipia Kenya, believed initially to be the first time one was captured in 100 years in the wild. However soon after the media made a meal of it, it became apparent that a black leopard had been photographed in 2001, 2007 and 2013 and seen on many other occasions. Perhaps it was because of the motion picture ‘Black Panther’ that the media latched on to it. Whatever the reason, it’s clear that the world is fascinated with and likes leopards especially black ones, but what many don’t know is that they face fierce persecution due to habitat loss, coupled with human/leopard conflict. Sound familiar? Is this not a big threat if not the biggest threat facing many of our planets species? #blackleopard #leopard #humanwildlifeconflict #blackandwhitephotography #blackpanther #lovetheplanet #reconnectwithnature #habitatloss #savehabitat #saveleopards
