Amber Eyes and Nhena were found together, both of them longuing near the road. They were preparing to mate, with Nhena watching Amber Eye’s mood carefully as he waited for the right moment. They then mated briefly and Amber Eyes rolled onto her back afterwards, Nhena letting her have her space.
The two were found again near their first location, flat on a wall. They were still mating and did so several times. Then they went flat again afterwards.
The pride was found early in the morning, their numbers divided in two locations. Lionesses and cubs were lying together flat in Gowrie cut line, lounging in the road. Three others were near Thandi, south of her on Drakensburg Road, making Thandi nervous with their presence but she didn’t meet them. One of the lionesses near Thandi has a wound in her head, a possible claw wound. All members of the pride looked quite hungry.
