  • Tsalala Pride
  • Manyeleti Males (Young)
  • Roller Coaster Males
  • Split Rock Males
  • Styx Pride
  • Windmill Pride
  • Nkuhuma Pride

Questions and other info are welcome, anything off topic will be moved to another forum or deleted.

The fact that they could be

The fact that they could be extinct by the year 2020 shocked me. Nothing I would complain only to prevent it.

Hi, I'm from Serbia.Еvеn if lions do not live on my continent, I really love them. The fact that they could be extinct by the year 2020 shocked me. Nothing I would complain only to prevent it. Just do not know-who to contact? Whether and how organizations to protect there are ? I hope you understand me and my English. Thanks in advance. TijanaUndecided

another source for info on the lion prides if the links above don't work is HERE which is the Lion_Bloggers list of blogs.  hope this helps

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.... especially when the cams go down.

oh wow!  i did not know you had the lions and prides identified!  i am a new member to africam.  i briefly saw the cam on the front page.  i am an animal lover and i immediately felt little sad because i could see one of the female lion appeared to be thirsty and tired. Frown  i know it is nature.  i will have alot of questions about the prides if i can post again?  thank you for your time and patience in reading my post!  have good day/evening ~

Last week, 3 sub adult males

Last week, 3 sub adult males were seen roaming Mala Mala.  They eventually met up with the Windmill pride and sounds of lions fighting were heard.  Afterwards, 5 of the Windmill pride were seen.  One wonders if the 3 young males may be the Windmill male sub adults and possibly have been kicked out of the pride.

Yesterday, 3 young males matching the description of the ones seen in Mala Mala were viewed at dusk moving from Djuma into Buffelshoek.

Wonder who these boys are?  They were said to be relaxed so apparently they are use to viewing vehicles.  If not the Windmill youngsters... possibly the 3 surviving Eyrefield sub adult males?  Some thought possibly the Nkuhuma young males.  Only time will tell if they are lions we are familiar with or new arrivals from out of the area.    Looking forward to further sightings of these young boys.   Hope they stay out of harms way.

Thank you Aquila for this

Thank you Aquila for this magnificient knowledge again. It is like reading a good detective story with different turns of events. In reality there seems to be one strong dominant pride and others shall live as they can (run or die). Mapogos dark brown hair is the sign of power!

Iceage, as much thanks to you! Your writing is a wonderful add to Aquila´s one. All of us who are eagerly waiting for lions to the waterholes and been following lately the Windmill pride, love to hear your characteization of the pride. It is our benefit that you have lost your heart to Windmills!
