Photographer Kevin Rooney documented the scene within the Mara North Conservancy in November.

He explains: “Our information, Johnson from Kicheche Bush Camp, knowledgeable us they’re all younger adults from the identical delight.

“They have been simply very playful and honing their stalking and pouncing abilities on one another after we got here throughout them.


“The preliminary sparring then led to a brief bout of boxing, with a few first rate jabs, crosses and uppercuts.

“I feel it was just about a cut up choice on which of the playful adversaries received the bout, and searching via my pictures that night, it made me and my spouse Karen each grin and realise how particular it had been.”

The Masai Mara is house to the most important inhabitants of huge cats in Africa, with greater than 800 within the space.
