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.

Othawas are the last Majingilane cubs!
‘Majingilane’ watchmen who patrol the night, marching with intent, never altering their course...

Testing fate.

This cub (and the two others not seen in my pictures) doesn't belong to the 2 male adults of this pride. According to our ranger this has never happened, where the male lions didn't kill off the cubs of another male. He doesn't know if them letting the cubs live is just an anomaly or simply a matter of time. Images by Patricia Im, November 9, 2018

This was one of the female lions of the small and unique pride that roamed this part of the reserve. It consisted of 2 adult females, 3 cubs, and 2 older adult males. Part of what made it unique is that the cubs did not belong to either of the males, and yet, they were peacefully coexisting. Our ranger explained that this is normally not the case, and that males tend to eliminate cubs that are not theirs, but apparently they have been living like this for a couple months.

This is one of the 2 older male lions and one of the lion cubs in the pride. Lions spend most of the day lounging in the shade to beat the heat.

There is something about being in the presence of a male lion, this particular individual was part of the Matimba coalition that called Londolozi home, they were not the biggest lions but they were beautiful. Image by Avijja Fonseka, November 14, 2018

@Raj8143, yes this fact is well documented, which makes the above report quite interesting, perhaps the photographer was simply mistaken. Here's an older image of Ginger (I think) when they used to spend time in Mala Mala. Image by hphpublishing posted November 14, 2018
