It is amazing she could have a cub at 14 years old. But if any lioness could do it this brave and courageous lioness could. I remember first seeing her with James Kydd as our guide when her wound was still raw after the hyena attack when protecting her two male cubs (One of which is called Solo).
Then seeing her with Brett Wallington as our guide all healed and with her two daughters two years later with the Mapogo males. And just this summer seeing her with Lucien Beaumont as our guide when she would have been pregnant, not known to us at the the time. She is a very special lion and has proven a wonderful mother! Hope she is sucessful once again.

Nancy your journey with this specific lioness has been incredible. I think possibly another trip is in store to continue with the magic …

What wonderful news. Too bad you couldn’t put someone on ‘guard duty’ to watch over the little one when Mom needs to hunt. I’m not being serious here but it would be nice.
Thanks for the lovely photos.

Wonderful news, she is the EPITOME of mother. She has raised so many successfully. Perhaps this one will go against the odds and be raised by ALL the Tsalalas…and wouldn’t THAT be wonderful! 🙂
Thanks for sharing!

What wonderful news, hope all goes well for her. How long is a cub with its mother?

Adam Bannister
Guest contributor

She will be alone with mom, separated from the rest of the pride, for about 6-8 weeks. Then hopefully the mother will introduce the cub to the pride and from then on they will be as one !

Do you know, which Majingilane of the four is the father?

Adam Bannister
Guest contributor

She was seen mating with all four at different stages so we cannot tell exactly.
