Ndzhenga Males

The two Ndhzenga males have still diligently defended their large territory on MalaMala, allowing a safer environment for their new offspring to thrive. Over half of all their sightings this month were with members of the Kambula Pride.

Noteworthy sightings:
  • On the 6th, they joined the bulk of the Kambula pride on a buffalo kill east of Emsagwen Waterhole.
  • From the 9th to the 11th, they were with the Kambula pride on another buffalo kill east of West Street Bridge, where their four youngest offspring made an appearance.
  • On the 16th, one of the males was with two Kambula lionesses at Bicycle Crossing. The other male was at Princess Alice Pans the following morning. 
  • They were both south of Rattray’s Camp with four lionesses and ten cubs on the 19th, where they all shared an impala kill. They were still with these 14 members at Kapen Open Area on the 21st. 
  • On the 24th, the smaller of the two males was mating with a Kambula lioness west of Piccadilly Triangle. 
  • On the 26th, both the males were with two members of the Kambula pride west of the Boom Hut, where the larger of the two mated with the female in oestrus. 
  • On the 28th, the smaller male mated with the same female at Kikilezihash Crossing, while the other male was further north at Sand Pit Crossing. 
  • On the 30th, the smaller male was with two Kambula lionesses at Lower Mlowathi Crossing with full bellies while the other male was pursuing another Kambula lioness north of Mlowathi Pans.

Good to see both Ndzhenga males doing fine with the Kambula females, hopefully Nkhulu males stay out of Mala Mala for the next years 
(reports from Mala Mala posted by @Tonpa indicate that the Nkhulu boys have visited the reserve in the last month)

"Thanks to David (our lovely ranger) I was so luckily to see the famous Ndhzenga males and the "mega alpha" Kambula pride with their cute cubs! More pics to come!"

based on my research different males 

Uboso was sired by the older lubeylubey male who I think recently passed and was born into the lubeylubey pride

Gore, Orange eyes, Amahle was sired by the matasaka males born into the nwaswitshaka pride 

All four are born in kruger a lot of people think that Ubuso was sired by the famous jock males and that Gore OE Amahle was sired by the Charleston boys but the dates of they birth are a year or two off when those two coalition took over  n-waswitshaka 'waswitshaka

He was sired by 3 old Nkhulu males, same as Old Lubyelubye and Matshapiris.

By 3 Old Nwaswitshaka males (not sure if they call them matasaka males).

A tender moment between an Ndhzenga male and one of his cubs ?

Wonder what she’s saying to him?

Did uboso mate with any Kambula lionesses? It’s theorized that most of the styx subadults are his as he was most dominant at the time? Just curious

During the initial days of takeover, he dominated the mating sessions.

Actually AFAIK first to be seen to do so. With K6 ofc, so irrelevant regarding offsprings.

True….I ventire to say that the initial frost litters (all lost to leopard attacks) were probably mostly sired by him. But he lost a lot of condition afterwards and I am not sire he was mating at the time these new surviving litters were consummated…..but we never know really
