Good to hear the Ntsevu pride were reunited. The lion dynamics seem to be ever changing, but would it be possible to do an overview of which lions are where – when I came in November I saw the Mhangeni pride and there were 8 of them. I’m wondering if they’re still around?
In this week’s virtual Safari we spend the evening with the two Ntsevu Mothers and are delighted to say that all four cubs have been reunited. We are unsure as to exactly how they found the missing youngster but celebrate the fact that they are all alive and well. To top it off they are able to replenish their energy stores as the mothers managed to catch a zebra during the course of the evening.
However, as darkness draws nearer, we do not want to stay with them and put any unnecessary pressure on them, especially with the youngster around and the likelihood of hyenas moving in to harass them.
Returning first thing in the morning we return to see what had unfolded with the lions and zebra carcass. We are greeted with a very different scene as a large clan of hyenas is lurking around the fringes while a Ntsevu Sub-adult Male lays claim to the carcass.
Enjoy this Virtual Safari…

It was such a relief to see all of them together again. We haven’t heard much about the Mhangeni Pride of late. I will ask around and see where they have been and how they are all doing.
