Lion (Panthera Leo)
We’ve had some really great lion sightings this month and even an close encounter with the young lioness of the southern pride. She has become very inquisitive of the vehicles and is coming very close, the one drive it looked like she was going to jump into the vehicle. The Dinokeng and Thembe male finally met up on Lilly dam road where there was a big fight and the Thembe chased the Dinokeng back into the south. The cubs of the western pride have really grown a lot and the young males have started to grown their manes, the sightings of them however have not been so great this month as they have moved to the north western part of the reserve making it really difficult to find them.
