South Africa Gets the Lion’s Share

South Africa Gets the Lion’s Share

Discovering the wild surprises of the African nation, one image at a time.

Nature reigns supreme in South Africa. In his travels through the nation, Kounteya Sinha encountered its many wonders. At the Cape of Good Hope he found a repository of history in the millennia-old tribal rock paintings, and witnessed one of the world’s six Floral Kingdoms. Further north, at Phinda Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal’s Maputaland region he explored seven distinct ecosystems and fell in love with a pride of tree-climbing lions. After all, it is not every day that you cannot return to the hotel because there is a lion lounging in the bar and you have to wait for the beast to make an exit.

  • Kounteya Sinha is a mountaineer, explorer and an urban nomad with a compulsive knack of running away from home since the age of five. After being a journalist for 16 years, his latest medium of storytelling is through images that he says nourishes his soul.
