The Lion King’s ‘Circle of Life’ Scene in Real Life

A wildlife photographer has captured a scene straight out of The Lion King on a recent trip to Africa.

Dafna Ben Nun snapped the photo of a mother baboon lifting her baby to the sky, recreating The Lion King’s iconic “Circle of Life” scene where baby Simba is lifted high above the African planes by Rafiki.

Dafna, 38, captured the photo on a recent trip to Zimbabwe. She shared the photo on her Facebook page along with many others from her trip.

“I couldn’t believe it when I saw an adult baboon holding a baby, looking exactly like Simba in the Lion King,” she said.
