There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Shish male lions

Elephant chases a hippo while the Lions just look on at the scene.
Video credit Tinged by Wild World Tours

"We were filming up in the Kruger. We drove along and saw an elephant drinking water and a hippo approaching the elephant to get to the water. After a few seconds, the elephant noticed the hippo approaching and gave chase. As the hippo turned to run away it slipped and fell but the elephant did not charge to injure the hippo, just to chase it away from his water. Once the hippo fell we noticed 2 heads in the background lift up. To our delight, it was 2 very large Male lions. After watching this for a few minutes we heard another roar 200m past the first 2 male lions. To our delight we noticed another 2 big male lions appear out of nowhere. We focused on the 2 pairs of lions for a while and then noticed the hippo trying to return to the water from the other side of the elephant. All the while, the 2 lions in the far background was keeping a close eye on what was going on. The elephant would have absolutely none of it and it chased the hippo up the embankment again and away from the water. The elephant then returned to the water and continued to splash itself and drink while the 2 pairs of male lions just continued to watch from a very safe distance. This was truly a memory the Wild World Team will never forget"

From Jock safari lodge

Lion update: Last night both the Eastern Bank Males and Thomson Males started roaring on both sides of the Lodge. At first light, the Rangers tracked the lions and found 4 Eastern Bank Males running from the 3 Thomson Males, although they did not catch up with them, the Eastern Bank Males are heading back east to their stronghold...who knows what tonight will bring! We are waiting for a showdown between these 2 coalitions. Photo by Estiaan Houy

One of the four ever impressive Shishangeni male lions powers his way through the beautiful Crocodile Bridge basalt plains on his way to rejoin the Vurhami Pride, after some time spent patrolling further north in their territory. Last weekend in the Kruger National Park. - Leo Vantage Private.

[b]Lions:
Once again, the N’wanetsi Concession lived up to its reputation of being fantastic for lions. There were sixty-one sightings of lions in total this month. What has been notable is that there has been a great variety of lions seen. We have had sightings of the Shish Pride, Mountain Pride, Shish Males, Southern Males, Northern Pride and the Xhirombe Pride.
The cub in the mountain pride is still doing well, and we are convinced that she will make it to full adulthood at this point. Of course, we can take nothing for granted out here. They have been seen in the far southern reaches of their territory towards the end of the month. One interesting morning they were found walking into an area where the Shish Pride had been seen only hours before. The Mountain Pride females could smell the other lions, and looked ready for battle, scent marking and salivating. However, the Shish Pride were long gone and nothing came of it, as the pride settled for the day. We do believe that at least one lioness in this pride is pregnant, and we are counting down the months in the hope of the arrival of new cubs.
Although the Shish Pride has not been seen too frequently on the concession, their appearances have been spectacular. On one occasion, Brian and Solomon were lucky enough to be there when the pride brought down a wildebeest. This lead to a classic Shish Pride feeding frenzy, the thunder of which would be heard
from a fair distance away. All safari guests out on drive that day were able to get a view of this, before the interaction over the kill ceased.

On another occasion, Blaine was with the Pride just after sunset, as they attempted to stalk a giraffe near Gudzane Dam. Whilst hunting the giraffe they flushed an unfortunate warthog, who lead the leading lions in a long chase. The hapless warthog then turned back towards the rest of the pride and was caught. The lions ate the entire animal in less than two minutes.
The white lion continues to look healthy, as do his siblings. We still wonder when it will be that he and his brothers will no longer be tolerated in their fathers’ territory and will have to make their own way in life. It really could be any time from now.
The One-Eyed Male, of the Shish Male Coalition, has not been seen at all this month, despite sightings of the rest of the coalition, and the general opinion is that that lion must be dead. The three remaining males in the coalition appear to be in good health, despite the limp that one of the older males has carried for more than a year and a half now.

I believe that he was killed by the N'wanetsi males.
