Fourways Males vs. Styx Males

Although it would be interesting to see how the Fourways and Majingilane would react if they came across, being that the Fourways are the first offspring of the Majingilane!!

Is it just me, or do the Styx Males look larger and have fuller manes than the Fourways males?

I wonder if the Majingilane would recognize their sons as adults. Any thoughts here?

Which pride are the Fourways from? Is this pride still in the area?

We saw the Fourways a few weeks ago when we were at Londolozi. Please keep us advised of their progress.

These are beautiful males growing in confidence and strength every day…if they come across one or two majinga they could well be victorious..but to stumble upon the four brothers they would need to run for there lives and live to fight another day

Very interesting. Could you explain the map a bit more? What do the three blocked areas mean? I take it that is all Londolozi but whey do you split it into three like that?

Hi Lachlan,

The three blocked areas delineate the original properties in the Sabi Sands Reserve.
The central one is known as Sparta and was the original one purchased in 1926. The northern one is known as Marthly and was acquired by Londolozi in 1999, and the southern one is known as Dudley, and although not owned by Londolozi, is still traversed by us on game drive.

Hope that helps.

Regards,
James

Interesting update Simon, and great images. I miss seeing photographs of the beautiful Majingilane…there is nothing more impressive than seeing the four of them together…such strength, beauty and confidence. I hope they will survive for some time to come. There will be interesting times ahead with the younger Styx and Fourways males moving in. Please keep us updated.

I feel that FOURWAY males are the cubs of other senior fourway males now old.

Is orange-eye of Fourway the son of Majingilane?
