Hey guys

That video was taken by a guest on my vehicle. We are also watching and waiting to see what happens next. I’ll watch your blog and try keep up from your side, but if you have anything you need from the North, please feel free. So far we have seen these 4 males a lot more than you guys as they go as far North as the Manyaleti Reserve as well. There has been atleast one Tsalala cub running around up here by herself, so hopefully the adults find her soon.

This is very informative with the dates, names, locations and actions of all the lions and prides involved. This has made it easier follow and understand. And yes, this is a story that is continually unfolding while leaving us to wonder what the finale story will be. Thank you.

Many thanks for the updates. I would like to know wether it is possible that this carnage between lions is stopped by the park rangers. These beautifull animals are being wasted.

Hi John,

Thanks for you thoughts. This conflict between the lions is completely natural and as such is not stopped by anybody. It is not considered a waste of to see these animals die, it is a natural procession of nature that has been taking place for many thousands, if not millions of years. I know this might seem strange in a world where we have decreasing lion populations, however these animals are naturally hardwired to be dominant and will do what they must to fight for territory. There would still be conflict between then regardless of if we were there or not. At Londolozi we are trying to have as gentle an impact on the environment as possible and this goes for being casual observers of what is unfolding in nature around us. I hope this answers your question as it is one I understand very well, being passionate about lions myself. Please let me know if you would like anymore resources on this topic or have any other questions.

Regards,

Rich Laburn

It’s a pleasure, I am sure that when you arrive in October there will still be much drama and change. Will keep you updated on what is happening so that you are up to speed when you arrive.

after watching the Mopogo’s kill so many lions themselves, it seems like they are getting payback. But it’s sad to see such grand lions being killed. I will miss following Kinky Tail and Mr. T (Satan)

Many people call it karma, but who knows if it is also true for the lion kingdom. I suppose we just call it the natural order to make it seem less dramatic and violent to our own nature. Yes it is sad to see such grand lions being killed, however as with much of nature everything that dies provides an outlet for something new to grow out of it. Hopefully the remaining lions will still be able to write a few more chapters in this period of the Sabi Sands. Thanks for your thoughts.
