... deeply, shuffle through it, then defecate in the same spot.

Once we entered into the 'no entry for any reason' section we almost straight away spotted a male lion about 50m away. After some insanely fast reversing (literally Doomey was driving as fast and as accurately backwards as he does forward) to get a closer look we saw our oldest male lion we've seen yet at right or nine.
