The story of Skimmer was extraordinary, a lion that defeated his famous fathers, the Duba boys, and reigned for years in the Okavango Delta. There can be only One...

A great sighting yesterday of the dominant Chitabi males, as they teaches one of their sons a hard lesson in front of the rest, to send the message clearly to the rest.

Okavango Delta, Botswana.

Sekekama and tornnose grandson, Phakara son, after he was beaten by male snipers and kicked out of leadwoods.
He was having wounds but not serious, he will heel with time.
He was trailing in his fathers old territory , sable valley, but here too he is in danger as many males are roaming in this area.

I have read that they enter some other males territory ( possibly mbabe males).
So this endeavour may not end well.

Correct me if i am wrong but savuti marsh is where these boys came from. The mbabe males took over that territory from their fathers.

Sekoti and his three younger brothers went north and took over their older brothers' northern pride. I thought they would expand elsewhere beside going back south to marsh savuti which they originally came from.

Absolutely correct.
As sekoti ( half tail) , oldest among the 4 ( Renegades) and de facto leader, led them back to South ( Marsh savuti).
