James, have you noticed if the dark maned male has more success with the females than his brothers? I was watching a documentary about lions and they stated that in the ‘lion world’ that a dark mane seemed to signify virility and such males were the preferred choice of the females.
Still a big fan of this blog, you do a great job, wishing we were there ….. have a great weekend.

Another wonderful week in wonderful Londolozi. Thank you, again, for making the ending of my week wonderful once more.

Every time I see a picture of one of those males, sounding, calling, I see his breath and I can HEAR that loud, bass, rasp that shakes me to my toes. Just as we did in 2011, in the dark, when we came upon one of the males as he was awakening and he began to call to his brothers, through the mist, across Londolozi.

We will never forget that primordial call…it shook us to our toes. Distinct, lonely and lovely.
Fabulous pictures!
