No, this is not a hunting photo…..Briton Alex Larenty lives on a game reserve in South Africa and spends his days giving lions foot massages. One day, he discovered that every time a lion was applied a cream to cure an infection on its paws, the lion would slacken and appear to smile. Since then, he has massaged all the lions in the park on a daily basis. Thanks to the pampering, he created a bond such that just by seeing him arrive, the lions lie down, begin to stretch their legs and smile. With love and respect, all relationships are possible! alex larenty

Trainer Alex Larenty gives Jamu the Lion a foot massage at the Lion Park on May 31, 2010 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Casting a spectacular image, Jamu the nine-year-old male lion enjoys his favourite game ‘This Little Piggy’ with fearless handler, Brit Alex Larenty, 50, from Chipping Norton.

Caught on camera in sunny South Africa last week, 250kg [551 lbs] Jamu looks like the cat who got the cream as he casually lies back and lets his keeper massage his gigantic paw. Alex, who emigrated to South Africa, is able to get incredibly close to the big cats he works with at The Lion Park near Johannesburg, through complete mutual trust. Having reared many from birth, he is able safely to walk into the middle of colossal Jamu’s pride and play games while surrounded by huge numbers of the massive predators.

While a stranger trying the same thing would end up as lunch for the animals, Alex uses his unique relationship to get close to the big cats he loves. He said: “I built up a relationship with Jamu through putting insect repellent onto him, which is necessary here to keep our animals protected from things like parasites. He eventually realised he liked being scratched and tickled and now his favourite game is ‘This Little Piggy’. He loves it’. alex larenty

And according to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, the two developed a strong friendship that they even walk, play wrestling and swim together at the Modisa Wildlife Project in Botswana, and Valentin Gruner said: “I think Serga considers me the best friend, she loves to hug me a lot, she rubs her head On my head a lot, just like a house cat.”

“Serga has never been aggressive towards me but I have great respect for her strength, I am sure she understands that I am very different,” he emphasized. The nine-year-old African Queen of the Jungle was born after her parents were captured and taken to a rehabilitation camp, but Serga’s mother I stopped feeding her and faced certain death without Valentine’s help.

Valentin co-founded the Modessa Wildlife Project with the goal of preserving spaces for the benefit of wildlife and local people, and provides accommodations for guests from all over the world to come and experience the amazing African bush.
