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.

Well as for any alone young male. Not having dominant pride males certaintly will help him to stay with a pride as much as he wants, until hes ready, Torchwood young male is in similar position, unfortunately for Nkuhuma young male he wasnt that lucky, he was kicked out by Avocas and now is on its own, he will need to survive until hes big and strong enough to become a king.

He will be fine, lets hope that, like i said before it would be fantastic if Styx-NK male-Torchwood male meet up! for the prides is just a question of time to some new males try to take Styx and Torchwood, just my guess or maybe this lioness are tired of dominant males and prefer to live a nomadic life without them (i think this is just stupid theory lol) ... some say the Mhangeni lioness want to get rid of Nguvu and thats why none of the cubs survive... this is true? none of them  survive?

"just my guess or maybe this lioness are tired of dominant males and prefer to live a nomadic life without them (i think this is just stupid theory lol)"

Sex drive will always push females into dominant males, moreover Styx pride droped throught 2018 from 13 members to 6 so they are perfect example that protection of dominant male(s) pays off.

"some say the Mhangeni lioness want to get rid of Nguvu and thats why none of the cubs survive... this is true? none of them  survive?"

One female survived, she is sub-adult now. Rest of the cubs starved to death. It has nothink to do with females willing or not to Othawa male be their dominant male.

MALAMALA TODAY: January 23rd-25th.
The last 3 days saw us record 9 sightings of lions involving 3 prides as well as a coalition of males, 10 leopards sightings, 2 packs of Cape hunting dogs totaling 30 individuals, hoards of elephants, several buffalo and an array of other game.
A rather strange thing happened on the evening of the 23rd. We were viewing a small herd of buffalo near Mlowathi Dam. A female that had been laying down stood up and, without preamble, gave birth in front of us. We didn’t have to much time to fully absorb the spectacle that is new life before a rowdy elephant that had been swimming in the Dam came charging in at the herd of bovines. For whatever reason the elephant had it in for the buffalo and chased them relentlessly. In the chaos it soon became apparent that the buffalo had more cause for concern... lions had entered the fray! The Nkuhuma pride made several failed attempts at catching one of the formidable beasts before giving up. Miraculously the newborn calf had gone unnoticed during the ordeal but it had been separated from the herd which was already moving off. Unfortunately, things didn’t end well for the youngster - the following day it was being fed upon by hyenas. The youngsters from the Torchwood pride who have been spending more and more time on our reserve (seemingly breaking away from the pride itself) were seen on all 3 days. They were found at Confluence Crossing, Lion Loop and Matshapiri Open Area respectively. All 23 members of the Kambula pride and Gowrie male coalition were viewed on the 24th and on the 25th. They were initially found near our airstrip and killed a wildebeest to the west of MalaMala Camp overnight. They then moved into the Sand River in front of MalaMala Camp.
