Great shots again Mike. I think the first offspring of the ‘Majingilane’ are in the Fourways Pride

Great pictures Mike . I’m curious as to where you were when you shot them ie ground level or in the jeep .

Oh Mike what a pity that you are not all allowed to traverse “each others space”, we would then be able to enjoy the feeling that you gave us so far! Now we wait to turn to the next page for more excitement! Thanks for sharing that tension that the lion’s eyes showed.

I am wondering if you have any knowledge of a male lion who was referred to as Solo. I think he spent some time with the Styx pride and the Roller Coaster Male before he died. I saw him right after he had been expelled from his pride as a young male there at Londolozi and got some good pics. I always wonder what happens to the animals I photograph.

Solo is alive and thriving around the Kirkman’s Camp/Sabi Sabi/Idube area alongside his coalition mate the Eyrefield male, Cleo. If you like their pages you will get to see some great pics of him, he’s huge and beautiful now and looks very much like his mother BB (but with a huge mane lol).

Amazingly beautiful and dramatic! Fabulous photos of their eyes!! I love how their paws appear to be dragging the ground. And how the siblings are in perfect unison, like a dance, even their paws:)

I have been following the Styx pride for a few years now. Good to know they are healthy and growing.. The Majingilane coalition, will be giving us some spectacular progeny, I do believe.. Although I still miss the Mopogos.. Thank you for sharing.

I love the Styx pride, they were the pride we saw most on the online safaris that Wildearth used to stream from Djuma. The boys look wonderful, I just wish that they’d been born a bit sooner so that the young Styx male that Gogi brought up, and was on his own, could have had company. Thanks for the pictures of the “Golden Pride” they are still as beautiful as ever !

Beautiful pictures and evocative words illustrating a stunning pride- we will have to return to try and see them ourselves! Keep up the amazing entries-we appreciate your hard work! Overton family.

I think I love reading everyone’s comments as much as reading your blog! The photos are incredible! I just can’t imagine how you got so close to the ground with these shots! Literally, it looks like you were laying on the ground right in front of them! What an impressive pride! And who has their own Facebook page?

So cool….

Seriously, I’m so jealous. Love your blogs and the pics are stunning. Hopefully when I come back to Londolozi I’ll be able to see the Styx pride….. Thanks for posting.
