About this book

The `Kingdom of Lions' is the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, where the author has spent much of his time since 1977. This beautifully illustrated book describes the rise and fall of the various prides of the Mara as each group of pride males grows older and fights to defend its territory against the younger nomads. The other animals of the Park - leopards, wild dogs, and the cheetah - are also studied, as is the role which the local people have to play in the future of the area.

For those who have yet to visit Kenya's Masai Mara, this book will inspire you to pack immediately. African Safari magazine - "His best book of all." BBC WILDLIFE

Jonathan Scott has spent most of the last 25 years in the Masai Mara, photographing and writing about the animals, and especially the big cats. A former winner of the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award and co-presenter of BBC-TV's Big Cat Diary, he has written and photographed eight other major books (latterly in collaboration with his wife Angela, who is BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year for 2002) and has established himself as one of the great portrayers of East African wildlife.
