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.

Yes  mfumo hasn't been seen not even once since early to mid summer in any of the areas bordering their territory I believe if he were still around by now someone somewhere south in kruger or east even west ss or north in the manyeleti or timbivati he would have been documented or photographed especially a lion of his size in his prime id also love to be wrong but the chanses of him just being hidden with a lioness when he has his own prides and territory just doesn't seem logical to me I hope I'm wrong but I think its more than likely he has had something bad happen to him it could be a whole plethra of possibilities I would be extremely surprised if he showed up anywhere at this point and its really ashame he is a very impressive specimen but things like this happen in the wild . hopefully his 3 brothers will stick together they have a lot of young cubs to protect

That is indeed the likely outcome, but there have been instances where lions in large coalitions have split off from their brothers to live independently with a pride for long periods. This is exactly what the youngest Giraffe male did and he has now spent the last 18 months going it alone with the Black Dam Pride. The Sizanani male who was a Nkuhuma offspring was also renowned for disappearing for many months unseen before magically reappearing. Anyway here's some pics of Nhenha from yesterday in Mala Mala.

MALAMALA TODAY: October 1st&2nd. 8 lion sightings: 3 lionesses from the Kambula pride, 2 Gowrie males and 6 cubs were found feeding on a nyala bull kill near Maxim’s Lookout while the 3rd Gowrie male was mating with another Kambula lioness near Sable Camp. All 3 males reunited the following day near West Street Bridge and the 3 lionesses moved their cubs south in the Sand River towards Rattray’s Camp.

MARKING TERRITORY. A dominant male Lion patrols his territory within Singita Sabi Sand, Greater Kruger Park.
The Lion walked up the track towards the game drive vehicle and stopped almost inline with them, rubbing his facial glands into a small tree and then scent marking. It provided the guests with an amazing up close and personal opportunity to look deep into the eyes of a Lion, and get incredible photographs of the ritualistic behaviour, as this apex predator concentrated on the important task at hand.

MALAMALA TODAY: October 3rd-5th. All sightings consisted of lionesses from the Kambula pride, the 6 older cubs and the 3 Gowrie males.
This was taken a few mornings ago on a very cold morning. Three lion brothers were relaxing in the sunshine and slowly moving from place to place to find some warmth.Credit: image by David Whelan  at Mala Mala, posted October 6, 2018
