Great blog and tribute to a Great Success story. I hope they hold on long enough for the younger cubs to make it to independence.

Nice blog…Thanks!…This month marks 5 years of Majingilane dominance. Hope to see them hold on for a bit longer especially with new threats coming in from the east like the Matshipiri males who seem to be bent on revenge…there are some reports that they might be the long lost Othowa males since whiskers patterns from old pics seem to match. If this is true, this means they are the brothers of the current Othowa females and sons of the Mapogos, which makes it an interesting twist to this saga.

I for one, really hope that the Matshipiri Males have the Mapogo blood in their veins, that would be a nice legacy 🙂

James you forgot about the 3 Othawa girls they are Mapogo daughters. There is some speculation that the Matshapiri males might be the Othawa males from 2007 Mapogo sons that left in 2011 I for one have seen pictures and dont believe too be so. Great blog

Ah, the Majingilane boys. They too, are on my bedroom wall. In fact, Scarface & One Tooth are looking at me right now. Can’t wait to see them again.

Wonderful news on Father’s Day! I too hope they survive until I visit again to see them for myself.

Great blog, images and especially love the video James! The Majingilane are incredible to see — I hope their reign lasts a while longer and their cubs all make it to independence. I wish a very happy Father’s Day to all the Dads at Londolozi!

Thanks James, very nice blog.
There are also the 2 Young Styx-females sired by Majingilanes, and now breeding with the Southern Matimbas. One lioness already has cubs, the other hopefully soon.

it is not easy to be a male lion . estimated adult male lions make up only one per cent of the whole wild lion population.

Happy Fathers day to all the fathers of Londoolozi, each one is important!

In your offspring count, don’t forget the sisters of the Styx males, one of whom has given the Majingilane their first grandcubs.

Wonderful Father’s Day blog!! My daughter and I didn’t get to see the Majingilane when we visited Londolozi in May, but we did get to see the newcomers (2 males/1 female). We do hope to see the big boys when we return!!

don’t forget the 2 younger females from the styx pride that broke off from the original pride. Also, the sister of one of the fourways male

Aww, what a fantastic blog and what wonderful pictures. It is amazing to hear how many offspring they have. I only had the opportunity to “meet” Scar Nose but I can’t wait to see him again, and hopefully all of his brothers the next time I come back. I sure hope they are still in power then. Happy Father’s Day to the Majingilane and to all the human Fathers out there as well.

Can’t wait to see the young ones next month. So please that so many have survived. We were there when they were tiny!
