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.

These lions are mis identified as Western Pride.   It’s actually the Gomondwane Pride.  

Footage was taken near crocodile  bridge

Ok, I didn't know.

Anyone seen anything on the report of a Avoca lioness dying not being correct? Read elsewhere that no lioness from the pride actually died but I haven't been able to independently verify the information. Figured I'd ask here given the numerous contacts other members on here have in the Timbavati region.

Read some message exchanges that said only three had been sighted recently but I really can’t remember where. Also don’t know how reliable the sources. I know it’s been hard to get much information since Cristoff left Timbavati


But today we did get to finally see the White Birmingham and his Brothers.

That is not an issue initself as Tanda Tula reports (I think) cover the same (or at least mostly) arena in their blogs. The issue is that Birmingham breakaways moved off to an arena from which there are no updates.

I wanted to follow up with more clarity about the Avoca Lioness.  

One lioness (older) did in fact die.    But it was not one of the new mothers.   That was the confusion.  

People kept asking if a “mother” died and they said NO.

Tanda Tula update

It was a week dominated by lions, with the Giraffe Pride, River Pride, Sark Breakaway, and the original Sark Pride all being seen. The arrival of the Sark Pride sparked some debate about what was going on as they arrived at the overlap of the Sark Breakaway and River Pride territory, and this understandably drew the interest of the Vuyela males that promptly set about mating with the new lionesses in the area. It is a common practice for lionesses to throw themselves at new males, and from one account, one Vuyela male was mating with four of the five Sark lionesses at once! No wonder he looked exhausted for the rest of the week. While the Sark Pride were around, the Sark Breakaways also made a return to the same area and were only a couple of kilometres away from one another at one point. It would be interesting to see what the outcome would be if these two prides met, as they have been separated now for over four years. Time again will tell whether the Sark females will settle in the eastern section of the Klaserie and venture into the western parts of the Timbavati; this would potentially pressure the River Pride into moving into a more central position around our concession. The Mayambula pride were sadly absent during this period, but as is often the case, their absence brings out the cheetahs!
