In our last issue of Safari we asked you to send us your best wildlife photographs from Africa. We received hundreds of entrants, wittled it down to three winners, and were left with a Facebook album of wildlife eye-candy. Here are the ten photographs you ‘liked’ the most:

1. Taken in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, the pride of lions had made a buffalo kill earlier in the day and after eating his full, this male wondered over to a puddle of water in the road and drank thirstily. Photo © Tamlyn Smith

8. Marakele aardvark. This aardvark (or as they are known in Afrikaans, ‘erdvark’), is one of the most illusive species in all of Africa! They are nocturnal and almost never seen at night, let alone in daylight. This image was taken in the sweet last rays of the setting African sun. Photo © Rudi van den Heever
