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.

Most likely a girl and a boy considering one is larger than the other.

Amhale is seen mating with Kambula female #1. That means she lost her new cubs to a leopard last week

Those are either not Kambulas, or Kambula #1 found new partner.

As Kambula #2 is currently in Sabi Sabi, he was also occasionaly seen in Sabi Sands past 2 months or so as he returned back from Kruger, without Kambula #1.

Kambula #5 seen mating once again. Would indicate sad news about the fate of her cubs. Sad

This may be a sign that all three litters have been lost now Sad

It is common to loose the 1st litters of cubs after a takeover, if the pride is not confident with the new males. 

The former husband and sons and daughters of Kambulas are still in the area. 

The Nashwa's are a weak coalition, have not been able to kill or drive away most of adults or subadults, or eliminate the cubs.

They are not a weak coalition. Even with the current ailments they are likely the strongest coalition in Sabi Sands by far. 

They however made some strategic errors recently that resulted in quite a beating. So they learned to stick together.. But that means they can cover less grounds which allows nomadic lions or other groups they normally hunt down more breathing space when they hang out in their territory. But that's off little problem as those know to keep away and its not like the Nwas arent guarding at all. 

I don't think this is to blame for the loss of the cubs though as there is little reason for the lionesses to hide them from the Nwas. Most likely its just a combinations of the normal causes, with perhaps some hostile pride dynamics.

Agree, I think Nwas is probably the strongest coalition, they've just gotta stay together.

If in fact the Kambula female has lost his litter of cubs sired by the Ndhzenga coalition, It's really a shame. Definitely it's an unfortunately which happens a lot in the bush, actually, and one of the more hard stage in the life of a lion is surviving his first year of life. The Ndhzenga did their job, they sired cubs, provided them protection and food. But unfortunately they didn't make it.
They're currently one of the strongest and healthy coalition in the Sabi Sands, Without any doubt...
