5 Saba Bora males 
"Today I was so privileged to see my big boys The Saba Bora Boys for the first time this year, been quite long as I wasn’t passing through their territory.
Boys really have grown up and BK looks exactly like BJ I am telling you. I have a video but I have poor wifi here in Southern Serengeti, I will post a beautiful reel of them and a video I liked the most."

Hi Spealea. Those pictures were taken by Tariq Said Sarico, the text also belongs to him. I put the credits below the pictures. 
I wish i was the lucky person that photographed this stunning group of lions!  Lol

also may i ask you, is 'BK' an abbreviation for 'Bob Killer'?
If so im honestly disappointed that this name seems to have been accepted by others.

Congratulations to your friend as concerns these photos...


" also may i ask you, is 'BK' an abbreviation for 'Bob Killer'? ":  Sincerely, I don't know. Somebody else, here, knowing well the Serengeti lions will reply to you.

Yes, that's what 'BK' stands for, unfortunately.

Yeah not a fan of the name. Plus he didn't kill him solo so not much point giving him that title.

THE SABA BORA BOYS SAGA!! The boys are now seriously expanding their territory, they've taken over Punda Kopjes pride and chased the two boys from Punda Kopjes, one of the two boys from Punda kopjes was badly injured, found him leaping.

According to their numbers and the area they reside, they really need to expand it so that they get enough place for food and enough place to roam in, but remember one of the factors of many lions to loose their territories is owning a large territory to the extent that they can't be able to patrol it and many upcoming kings yawns for it!!

The Saba Bora I'm very sure they'll live many many years and if they continue being together, it will be one if the super coalition in Africa and they'll teach us many things and they'll have so many generations in their life. I am one of the person who follows them daily and very interesting in documenting their daily life.

If I am not mistaken, I think  i read somewhere, maybe one of Tariq posts, 1/7 Saba Bora Boys left his bros, and is either on his own or started a smaller coalition with another male?

Hi. I am very grateful for finding this forum. I am planning a trip to Serengeti in about 3 months and was looking to find information about the current state of lion coalitions in the park + crater.

I would love if anyone could share a list of coalliations currently in the area and regions if possible or any sources of information anyone has where I could further dig into.

It would be amazing to get educated and learn about this before I go as I believe it will make it that much more incredible for me when I get there and hopefully get to witness some of these lions in person.


Many, many thanks in advance

Yea i remember reading this on this topic. Idk, sounds like it was a brief misunderstanding? Not sure. 
At least 6 of them are still together
