Thanks Adam, great video footage. Lets hope the remaining 3 now almost subadults will pull through, and it is good for the future of this pride that all 3 are females. That will make for a great pride of at least 5 females in a hopefully brighter future, assuming the 4 breakaway females will stay separated and establish a turf of their own further north. BB (the original tailess) might add some more heads to one or the other group. If she has given birth it will most likely be her last one, at the age of 14 years and 2 years to go for raising a new litter to adulthood.
Hopefully the Majingilanes lost interest of testing their fatherhood for the Tsalala cubs. There are 4 Sparta females without cubs, so plenty of work to do for the males beside keeping younger coalitions at bay. With the Matimbas being happy campers in the far north, the Southern Males sniffing the growing weakness of the Mapogos to the west and all other freelance males not being strong enough to challenge the Majingilanes, they should be able to hold on for some more years…hopefully.

this made my heart smile. I’m glad I found your page. We were with another lodge 2 years ago in Sabi Sands and will most definitely be back somewhere, some times to see more lions playing like this! how fantastic!!

they certainly look like very healthy strong cats. Three new young females would be a very welcome addition to the Tsalala pride. Hopefully good times ahead. Thanks Adam.

Beautiful footage. I’m really hoping the cubs make it to adulthood. That would be such a huge boost for the pride. At the same time, it’s kinda sad that 5 of the other cubs didn’t make it:-(

I don’t know where Original Tailless (BB) is!

It was wonderful to see your video Adam, with the Tsalala five running around in the sand and that the
young Tailless seemed in such a good form.
