We found a large group of the Nkuhuma Pride, with five lionesses and six cubs among them. One of the lionesses was still sporting a massive weeping wound on her left hip. It is unknown at present what caused her nasty injury, yet it did not seem to bother her as she walked in-time with the rest of her pride. The once cute and fluffy cubs are fast becoming fully grown lions and every now and then tried their luck with sneaky suckle. Tinyo and Mfumo were also present in the sighting, doing what male lions do best, sleeping. As darkness fell the entire pride along with their Birmingham consorts made their way west, into Arathusa.
Excited chatter on the radio alerted the safariLIVE team to fresh lion tracks crossing into the property. WE raced to the area and began to slowly track down the suspected culprit, the youngest lioness of the pride and the newest mom. After a little bit of searching WE spotted her lying low in a patch of grass. Soon after three tiny fluffy heads emerged, the feisty little cubs squabbled of suckling rights before eventually falling asleep. Later that afternoon the lioness tucked her cubs away safely in their den and slowly ambled her way back to the pride.
