Fantastic blog. Just love the Sparta pride. First saw the young males and female when they were only 3 months old. Lovely to see them every time we visit. It was sad to hear that one of the males are missing.

Wow….I so wish everyone could just get along! I guess it’s not the way of the bush. Thanks for the post!

These were completely amazing lion sightings and observations! Lion warfare can be so brutal, almost like humans. The Styx Pride has known times when things were not looking good, so hopefully the Sparta Pride can bounce back also.

Mike, recently back from loz and seeing the Sparta males. They left a bigger impression on me than the 3 canine majingy (even though I hang on every report about the majingies). In my mind I was hoping that maybe they’d take over for their fathers (albeit after being pushed out by them) and be the ruling collation on my next visit. So so so sad 🙁 Nonetheless great blog, thank you.

Great blog Mike. The young Fourways male is the first son of Majingilane males…born 2010. The other male in the Fourways pride is adopted. Both of them were recently mating with the Charleston lioness at Mala Mala & Umkumbe.
Sorry to see one of the Sparta boys is missing. Hopefully he turns up.

Wonder what did happen to the fourth male ? I’m just hoping this boy is hiding

I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of one of the Sparta young males. The 3 brothers will have a rough road ahead,,,,it’s such a harsh life in the bush. Hopefully they will all recover from their injuries. Thanks for the great update on the lion prides Mike, as well as the wonderful photos. Let’s hope there are no further confrontations between the prides or losses.

Thank you for this update. I saw the Styx pride in May, they were quite a happy family then.. I hope these two prides can find territories that suite them and stay safe.. All the young males have a difficult road ahead.. Which makes for the every changing canvas of the bush!

Never good to loss any lion especially the males . Adult male lions make up only one per cent of the whole wild free lions in Africa number so they say no more than 20,000 .
