Amanda’s story with the D810 and 70-200mm lens

Amanda Marais was Emoya’s official photographer, documenting the arrival of the 33 lions at OR Tambo International Airport and the release at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary. Here is her story and pictures of the incredible events that unfolded on 30 April and 1 May 2016 as the first of the 33 rescue lions was released onto African soil. As the sun began to set and the sky turned different shades of purple and pink, we watched with great excitement as the Boeing carrying our precious cargo of 33 ex-circus lions landed on the tarmac at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg. Along with the Emoya and ADI team, hordes of journalists, news crews and press from around the world had gathered in anticipation of the arrival of the 33 lions from ADI’ s rescue facility in Peru.

She gave the cats a once-over and, after reams of paperwork was checked, the thumbs-up was finally given. The first lion out was sweet, gentle Joseph. He roared and made the announcement of his arrival loud and clear. The rest of the cats […]
