Who is the southern pride? Where do the come from. Another great sighting. Thanks

The Southern Pride is otherwise known as Shaw’s Pride. They use the Southern section of Londolozi as the northern part of their territory. The pride consists of 15 lionesses and sub adults, and are at times joined by the dominant male to make up the 16th.


Greg, just after you left Londolozi, the Shaws Pride split into ‘The Hildas’ Rock Pride’ and ‘The Southern Pride’.
The Hildas Pride was a small breakaway much like the Tsalala Pride in 1998- probably enforced by 2 lionesses as they had a new litter and weren’t able to introduce their new offspring into such a large pride. In recent times the Southern Pride have been seen up on Dudley more frequently courtesy of some pressure from 3 dominant males currently pushing north and west from the Skukuza area.


Hello, amazing story, was wondering if anyone has witnessed a single lioness or single male lion bring down a bull buffalo before?
