He was, however, worried that the equipment would be destroyed or misplaced in the process.

The only worry he had was that the equipment would be destroyed in the process and luckily, he retrieved it with just a few scratches, with the GoPro still functional.

“I’ll admit that I was worried about getting the camera back. We managed to chase after the lioness, and she dropped the camera," Galal stated.
