After an exciting week that presented a number of different lions, scattered all across the reserve, the Birmingham Males are found with the Ntsevu sub-adults, in the far southwestern parts of the reserve. Having a suspicion that their days are numbered, as it is unknown when the aging males will succumb to younger, fitter rivals, we have a look for ourselves as to what condition they are in.
Often a difficult leopard to spend time with before he scours away to hide behind a bush, the Mawelawela Male provides us with an amazing sighting as he patrols the open grasslands on a, particularly hot afternoon. And lastly, some good quality time with the wild dog pups has been had by all the rangers.
The pups now more confident and adventurous are spending a lot more time out of the den. With the vast majority of their diet consisting of meat and them venturing further from the den, the sanitary conditions within the den will decline and a move to a new fresh den is inevitable in the near future.
Enjoy this Week in Video…
