Joel’s photo of a tree-climbing lion in Africa’s Albertine Rift is featured on the cover of NG’s 50 Greatest Pictures special issue.
The Ishasha region of Queen Elizabeth National Park is home to some very unusual lions. Unlike most other members of the species, these lions climb trees to nap during the day, waking up at sunset to hunt.
