“He was so close to the lions that even though he was technically safe, he was still very scary,” Simon told.
“But safety is always my first priority. Although whenever I am very close to a lion I feel like I am in danger, I always take precautions to ensure that I am truly safe. A lion is almost 8 times stronger than a man, and just by being in the presence of a lion, I can feel the power they have. “
We admire Simon’s bravery in facing danger head-on. And we invite you to take a look at 10 of his incredible photos.
