Eorenji chase Skorro Orpen 
"A lion known as the Skorro male recently ventured onto MalaMala. One of the Ndhzenga males ensured that his stay with us was short lived."

MALAMALA GAME RESERVE | GAME REPORT | December-2023

THE NDHZENGA MALES = 2
  •  1 ADULT MALE ± 8 YEARS 10 MONTHS
  •  1 ADULT MALE ± 8 YEARS 5 MONTHS

(23 sightings)
"The Ndhzenga males are intent on either expanding their territory or ensuring no other males come
near the core of their territory where the Kambula pride are rearing two sets of their cubs. They have
been seen on numerous occasions in the region of Mlowathi Dam and crossing north over the Gowrie
Boundary. Hopefully, they do not stray too far on their territorial ventures, as their offspring in the
Kambula pride still rely on them for protection."
Noteworthy sightings:
• On the 1st, they were south of Styx Rocks with the bulk of the Kambula Pride.

• On the 4th, the smaller of the two males was feeding on an impala ram carcass in the Mlowathi
River, east of Mlowathi Pans. The larger of the two was south of Manyeleti Crossing, roaring.

• The next day they were seen together south of Plank’s Pan before crossing west over the Sand
River.

• On the 7th, they found the Three Rivers female with an impala kill in a tree south of the Airstrip.
She ran off, and one of the males climbed up the tree to retrieve the carcass but fell out quite
unceremoniously, luckily without injury.

• On the 8th, they followed three Kambula lionesses across the Causeway towards their den site
at Campbell Koppies.

• On the 9th, they were with one of the Kambula lionesses at Mlowathi Dam, attempting to mate
with her again.

• The smaller of the two males was feeding on a wildebeest carcass with a Kambula lioness west
of Mlowathi Dam on the 12th.

• He ventured south the next day and joined another Kambula lioness who answered his roaring
in the Sand River south of the Causeway.

• Both males were back together on the 16th at Mlowathi Dam, moving north towards the
Gowrie Boundary, roaring and scent marking.

• The smaller of the two males was at the Mlowathi Spot on the 18th, while the other male was
with the Kambula pride north of Drum Crossing.

• On the 23rd, at least one of these males was with the bulk of the Kambula Pride at Princess
Alice Pans.

• The next day, the two males were back together and were seen with two of the estranged
lionesses at Lower Mlowathi Crossing.

• On the 27th, both males were roaring with two lionesses on the northern parts of the Airstrip.

• The last time they were seen this year was on the 30th when they reclined with the Kambula
lionesses at Campbell Koppies.

2 Ndzhenga males with 1 Kambula female (mating) in MalaMala - 10/01/2024
"When we got to the lions (2 Ndhzenga males and 1 Kambula lioness) they were flat cats. One male was next to the female and the other was a few meters away. After a few minutes the male got up and made advances toward the female after which she succumbed and they killed. The other male lifted his head for a short while and when they were all flat again we left and stopped for drinks."
"After drinks we returned back to the lions and while the couple were mating the female became a bit hostile to the male and he started to roar. The other 2 also roared and not long after they all went flat."

K6? Maybe that's why she doesn't get pregnant, she never lets the guys finish the job.

The Ndzhenga brothers spoilt us last night as they ventured into the Northern Sands. This morning we set out to see if they were still around but their tracks crossed back South into Mala Mala.

Just to add, that on these sightings in the north, guides/rangers described them as massive males.

This again shows how subjective people impressions can be, to some certain lions are impressive, to others they might not be.

It's even worse in videos. I showed the video of the smaller Ndhzenga chasing Skorro to 2 of my friends ( big cat enthusiasts used to estimating weights and debating such topics ) and they thought both were big.
