It features awe inspiring images of the king of beasts roaming the plains of the Serengeti.

Some show fully grown lionesses taking down buffalo, while others depict young cubs at play.

The pictures also feature in an accompanying book of the same title with both aiming to raise awareness of the plight of the king of beasts.

There are fewer than 20,000 lions left in the world, and yet the danger to them is one of the least-known in conservation because their slaughter often happens out of sight.
