All in a lion now! These amazing images show an entire lion pride lined up together drinking from a watering hole at the same time.

Taken as part of a broader collection of photographs, the most endearing of the bunch shows a grand total of 23 lions quenching their thirst in a near perfect line, and all at the same time.

The spectacular collection was snapped by Swiss photographer Julien Regamey, 30, at the top of Kruger National Park in South Africa, in September 2016.

Julien said: “It was a very special moment for me because I had been trying to get this shot for a few weeks, and this beautiful lion troop is called the Bayala Pride.

“The pride had just come back from a hunt empty handed so they made their way to the watering hole with each other and that’s when I managed to get this immense chance to capture them all at once.

“It was a unique moment, and I feel privileged to of been able to their for this wonderful moment.”

Clearly an emotional moment for the photographer, after spending nearly a month trying to capture a image, Julien says it took him a long for the moment to settle in.

Julien said: “It has taken me a long time to realise what happened, because having so many lions in one single image in this way is a very rare and wonderful chance.”
