My most incredible experience with the lions was undoubtedly in the Ngorongoro crater. There is a particularly 'tame' pride of lions that have started exploiting the shade provided by 4WD - to the delights of the tourists!
We stopped near a 4WD whose shade was occupied by 6 lions sprawled on one another. As soon as we arrived this 4WD left - and guess whose window got a really near view of the lions!? At a moment inches separated my face from a male lion - and having a family sleeping against my door of the 4WD was awesome!!
For some really cool closeups of the lions near our 4WD take a peek at my Ngorongoro Crater travelogue
