Photographs from the not-so-local watering hole

 
 After a year of trying to get up close and personal with wild lions to no avail, South African photographer Greg du Toit decided to submerge himself in their watering hole three hours a day for three months just to get the perfect pictures. Even though this incredible feat got him two cases of malaria, Bilharzia, and several parasites, du Toit "would do it all again, worms and all." Du Toi also captured images of Africa's many other species, many of which are featured in the March issue of BBC Wildlife Magazine. See more images like the above at Daily Mail UK.
