on Exhilarating Morning With The Nkuhuma Male

Great post Kate! Amazing to see the Nkuhuma male out in the open like that – especially with a kill! We wonder why he moved it so far from the thick drainage line to have it in the open?

What an exciting morning for you and your guests.
This lion’s determination to protect his kill or prey is really amazing.
Great photos and video!

Always incredible to see the power and regal presence of male lions. You just can’t quite get used to it. Is he still with the Talamati nomads?

Awesome sighting and story, Kate. We’ve not seen this male in our several visits and wonder what he’s all about these days. The reserve currently has plenty of male lions; it’s hard to believe there’s room for him! Would love to know more about him…

Kate, wonderful blog with great pictures of the Nkuhuma male and kill.

At last one time hyenas rob the leopard as usual but in turn they are stolen the prey! Great! I wonder how many times leopards are successful and their prey is taken with strength by other predators. I think they are more successful than what statistics claim…

So fantastic to see the Nkuhuma male and just maybe he killed the warthog himself and that is why he moved it away so that the hyenas cannot get his kill.

Amazing sighting of this Nkuhuma male, but even more so, the fact he had claimed this warthog carcass and dragged it away from the hyenas into a safer place. You’re correct Kate that sometimes you just can’t explain why you see what you see. That’s the beauty of nature!

Great capture and story post Kate! Stunning imagery of this lion with his kill/steal!!

I hope that Nkuhuma will somehow manage to find a coalition partner that will actually stay with him! He is a beautiful boy and needs to be able to be dominant at some point in the near future!
