Its si little to almost no updates on whole Torchwood pride recently.

Latest info, which was around half a year ago, they had around 10 cubs.

Yeah, it was something like three cubs born in late 2020, four cubs born early 2021 of what was initially seven or six and then three cubs born mid 2021 of which only one remained at the end of 2021. Plus four cubs born a few months ago.


No clue if the mother of the newest four is one of the previous mothers who has gone back into cycles after her cubs died or another different female.

This is the last decent sighting if you wanna try go through it 





There's only one of the four newest cubs present in this video but all four were seen with the mother in sightings after

March 2022

Lions

Stability is a word in which we haven’t used for some time when it comes to the lion dynamics on the reserve. However, it would seem as if this is the most fitting way to describe the month of March when it comes to lions.
The Plains Camp males and Nkuhuma lionesses have without a doubt made themselves very much at home in the central parts of Singita Sabi Sand. With the lionesses taking care of two young cubs close to the area of Castleton it would seem that the Plains Camp males have made every attempt to make sure these females are protected from wandering intruders.

The single Birmingham male and his son the Nkuhuma male have forged a close bond, spending most of their time together now. These two males have quietly been moving back and forth across the southern parts of the property with the Plains Camp males making sure to chase them out each time they arrive in their territory. On one occasion the two males were heard vocalising and chasing a single Mhangene lioness which caught the attention of the Plains Camp males. Within half an hour the Plains Camp males had made their way right across the property, moving at least four and a half kilometres (as the crow flies) to where they were heard. The Birmingham and Nkuhuma males must have sensed them coming and quickly moved away from the area. The next day we saw the males and there were no visible signs of an incursion.

Most nights around Castleton camp, lions can be heard roaring. Although most of the time we believe the calls to be those of males, we too have noticed that the continuous beckoning is from one of the older Mhangene lionesses.

One very interesting interaction this month came at the expense of a bull buffalo. We observed as some of the Nkuhuma sub-adults, a Talamati sub-adult male and the three Nsevu sub-adult males fed on the same bull buffalo together north of the river. What came as more of a surprise was that after feeding on the carcass for almost two days, the two Plains Camp males along with the Nkuhuma lionesses (who had been settled nowhere near the feeding frenzy) made their way across the river, found the carcass and then also fed on it. Absolutely incredible!

I really like this lioness. Hopefully, one day she'll be accepted within a pride. Nice pic!!

Finally, mmohawk and blondie sired some girls too. 
As the nkuhuma pride is already scattered, these girls are vital ffor pride revival

Nkuhuma subadults gruop at EP's:

 

7 lions, of which 2 adult females and 5 subs, 1 sub male is with Nkuhuma cubs gruop, so theres 6 out of 8 subs accounted for, it looks like 2 sub females missing, but not 100% sure.

From the past few months, I have noticed that out of 2 sub females, only 1 is there ( and today that too is missing)

Africa Journey Nature Experience in FB has posted the females this past week.   

The Pride is in a bit of flux.   

Purple Eye was seen looking. Very poorly and Chela who was the second Lioness with the subs has been seen with the Cub mothers again.  It’s just hard to get them all accounted for at once.  

I believe there are two female subs.
