The beginning of 2010 was an interesting time for the lion population of the Sabi Sands with the Majingilane Males making quite the entrance and taking over from the well-known Mapogo’s. Since then, the Majingilane Coalition have ruled the majority of the Sabi Sands and in true ‘king of the jungle’ style, they have provided us with some phenomenal photographic opportunities. Emotions have been running high lately with questions of whether they were going to reign for much longer in May to them coming back with a vengeance in June. There is no way of knowing what the future will bring to these incredible males, all we do know is that the last four years have provided some of the best images of male lions ever captured. Enjoy…

The image of the outline of a male lion as he listens for roars of his coalition on the night air is a highly evocative one. Photographed by James Tyrrell
Father and son. The Majingilane with the missing canine exhibits the flehmen grimace, testing the scent of the nearby Tsalala lionesses. Photographed by James Tyrrell
The Scar-nose, Dark-maned and Hip-scarred males follow their fourth coalition mate through the gwarrie bushes. One can clearly see the distinct differences between the individuals in the coalition in this picture. Photographed by James Tyrrell

With each day the manes of these magnificent males get longer and thicker. Their bond too, between the coalition members, gets stronger everyday as the pressures of their territory grow. Photographed by Adam Bannister

Scarnose licks his paw after feeding on a kill which he stole from the Sparta Pride. Covered with hundreds of tiny barbs, a lions tongue will quickly tear open the meat they are feeding on and serves as a versatile tool for grooming. Photographed by Talley Smith
