For three nights last week Staff and Guests alike got very little sleep.
Every night without fail, just South of the Lodge, and shortly after sunset, the bush would come alive with the sounds of two of the Resident Dominant Male Lions, proclaiming their Territory. This was very simply a warning to any intruding Nomadic Males, “make a choice……..leave or come and talk to us’!!
Thank you Heinrich for the footage.
Sit back, turn up the volume and enjoy.

Duncan ,Who are these Males Gijimas or Mapogos or Majingilanes ???????
Ravi Hi, they are two of the Mapogos.
It’s Ngalalalekha?looks like he is still alive~ Thank god!
So whats the latest on the Mapogos? The lion in that video in undoubtedly Ngalalalekha.How have things been for the coalition of 5? And what about the Majingilanes? Would sure love an update.
Just to clear up which lions these are. They are definatley 2 mapogos. I havn’t heard of the Ngalalalekha pride. Could anyone give me any information on this?
The Majingilane males are popping into the northern pard of the Sabi Sands and they are seen from time to time at Djuma.
Ravi, could you please let me know who the Gijima male are?
As you said goose bump stuff.
