Meet the Cats

Thandi

This beautiful female leopard was born at the end of 2006 and is litter-mate to her sister Shadow. Traditionally Thandi has always occupied territory to the east of Djuma, but since her mother, Karula, disappeared Thandi has begun to move further to the west. To date she has raised two cubs to successful independence, Bahuti and Kuchava. Currently she is doing a fine job of raising her new young male cub named “Thamba.” Thandi is easily identifiable by her striking light eyes and her distinct 3:3 whisker spot pattern.

Shadow

Shadow is a resident female leopard and is often seen around Arathusa and the western edge of Djuma. She and her sister Thandi were first spotted at the end of February 2007. She is identified by the neat V notch on her right ear, a 4:3 whisker spot pattern and her distinct double necklace markings. The name Shadow is very appropriately named as she is seldom spotted and has a very shy manner.

Tingana

Tingana is a male leopard, estimated to have been born in June of 2006. His name means ‘shy’, given his initial skittish behaviour around the game drive and filming vehicles. He has a large territory stretching across most of Arathusa and Djuma and is suspected to be the father of many different cubs in the area. He can be identified by his large size.

Nkuhuma Lions

The Nkuhuma pride of lions have earned a reputation as being survivors. “Nkuhuma” means Brown Ivory in Shangaan; the pride was given the name by  the Djuma rangers and trackers who first found them under a Brown Ivory tree on Djuma near Jordaans dam.

Birmingham Boys

The Birmingham Boys were first seen at Djuma in December 2014 although spent almost a year gathering their strength on the fringes of the Matimba coalition’s territory. During the last half of 2015 they successfully drove off this coalition and today are proudly dominant over the Styx and Nkuhuma prides with the cubs that will secure their bloodlines.

Angama Lions

The Angama pride are the resident lions around the safariLIVE camp. Little is known about their origins, but it is believed seven lionesses from the famous Marsh pride broke away and crossed the Mara river, west, in 2014. These lionesses managed to push the Kitchwe Tembo pride into the Mara North conservancy. At the moment the pride consists of four adult lionesses and 10 cubs all aged between two and six months old.

Scarface and the Musketeers

Scarface male lion is one of the most famous and recognisable cats in Africa. He along with his three brothers Hunter, Morani and Sikio made up the infamous Musketeer coalition. In 2012 Scarface sustained a severe injury to his right eyelid when he and the other Musketeers made a play at a territorial takeover. The four males were successful and then took dominance over the famous Marsh pride. Just over a year later the impressive male found himself on the pointy end of a Maasai spear as he attempted to bring down domesticated cattle. Now Scar can be found ruling over the Paradise pride and main crossing points along the Mara river.
