The trio of inseparable lion brothers together rule the kingdom

For three kings in a row, these lions seem to be pretty relaxed and carefree – but that might be because Samburu, Shenzis and Shomba are brothers.

The three intimate portraits of big cats were captured by LA-based photographer Simon Needham.

Captured at the South Africa conservation sanctuary site GG, Needham’s photos of the three brothers are a brilliant contrast to the dramatic Lion King-esque shot of a pride king standing on a pile of bones he shot last year.

These restful shots have a different flavour altogether. But Simon says it isn’t always good news between the trio.

He said: ‘These guys are brothers and they love to hang out together as a group. They are very loving towards each other usually. However, just like other brothers they can get feisty.

‘When people see my photos of the three of them, I get an overwhelming response that they are amazed to see three such handsome lions together and so comfortable with one another.

‘It is so heart-warming to see them hanging out like this, they are very happy lions.’
