4 young N'waswishaka males are starting to establish their territory in the south of Sabi Sands, in Lion Sands and Sabi Sabi.

They came from N'waswishaka pride, which territory was around S1 and Phabeni Gate in Kruger, originaly they where breakeaway pride from that pride, with their sister, its unknown where that female is atm. 

They where most likely sired by the impressive old N'waswishaka male:

Out of 4 males, it seems that 2 are older ones, in between 4 and 5 yrs old, other 2 are about half a year younger, 1 of the younger ones is very recognizable because of his belly injury, which he has for few months now. 

2 older ones:

This guys are expert buffalo hunters, always seen trailing big buffalo heards and taking them down with high sucess rate. 





Because of great diet, they are growing big very fast, this is todays sighting of them in Sabi Sabi, after finishing another buffalo kill:





Its expected that these 4 will make a move somewhat soon in 2020. and try to takeover some prides, and as other coalitions in Sabi Sands rn dont have the numbers to match them, things could get bloody rly fast.

Most impressive of the 4, in Lion Sands:

Thats not recent, 2 months ago, lack of big prey during the winter times it seems. Recently they look very impressive and big.

Idk, in the past when this males come close to Sabi Sabi, Nguvu and Mhangenis moved further north into their old territory, when N'ws leave into Kruger, Nguvu is back in Sabi Sabi, i dont think thats coincidence, i expect from Nguvu to move further north again in future days if N'ws come in Sabi Sabi. 

Lets hope no clash , Nguvu has no chance, this males are not youngsters anymore, few of them are close to his age, and he wont be able to scare them anymore as a only one male.
