This is amazing news. The previous litters of the Ntsevu pride did not survive?

Can the Birmingham Boys reign over more than one pride? There is the Nkumhuma pride to the north. What coalition will try to take on these lioness?

Hi Gemma, it looks like the 3 young N.Avoca boys are claiming stake in Djuma.

Wow, and Wow! How exciting! Awesome re-enactment of what happened !!! So excited! I hope they are the lucky ones that make it to adulthood!!!!

How fantastic that you spotted the newest members of the Ntsevu female pride. I know survival is difficult in the first few months so hoping these little ones will make it. I’m looking forward to seeing pictures when you spot them again.

Excellent news! May they stay safe. Possibly they will be old enough for me to see them when I get to Londolozi in a little over three weeks. Curious if any leopard cubs have been seen lately. Seems like I remember in the past couple of months suspicion that a female was hiding cubs while another lost hers

Thank you for the update on the Birminghams. Glad they are doing well and establishing their territory.. I hope they return North sometime for the safety of the other 1.5 yr old cubs with the Nkuhuma Pride.. the last two Photos of a male are Nhenha.. he has and = sign on the right side of his nose.

What a great post Alex, I have to confess I was biting my nails as you were talking of your bush walk, i felt like I was there with you. That’s great writing!!
I look forward to pictures of the newest members in the pride as soon as mum allows. Watching Tinyo as a patient, hands on father ( in lion terms of course) has to be one of the sweetest things, aside from his tree climbing skills, lol.

New life for Londolozi’s lions, that is just amazing!! These could very well be the offspring of the Birminghams, unless any other maless have been on the reserve within the last three months?
