We have a lot of exciting news to reveal to you this week. Firstly, the Xinzele Female has given birth to another litter of cubs in the same den that she used last time. Nestled in a cluster of boulders in the northern reaches of the reserve she keeps two tiny little cubs.
A few mornings later we set off on a mission to try to find some lions that had been calling all night. As we get into the area where we think the lions maybe we find a herd of elephants. While spending some time with them we hear a male lion call very close by. Sure enough one of the Ndzhenga Males walks around the corner and we stay with him for a while as he marches straight down the road.
Upon leaving him, we hear an amazingly exciting update from Kirst that she had found the Ndzanzeni Female. Being nearby we go and join Kirst, and to our excitement, we see a milk pouch and suckle marks on the belly of the Ndzandzeni Female.
Enjoy this Week’s Virtual Safari…
A small female often found in NW Marthly. Similar spot pattern to her mother the Ingrid Dam Female.
This female is a success story all in herself, being born as a single cub to the Riverbank 3:3 female in early 2012.
