To rewind the story a little, two nights earlier we had the Mahlathini Males roaring to the North of camp, not far from where the White Lions had crossed out our traversing area. Having seen how they react to Lions roaring, they immediately head in the opposite direction, it shouldn’t have come as such a big surprise to find them back. Each time they have encountered other lions they have turned to our area seeking the safety of a place that has no resident pride and an available territory left by the Sohobeles.
That morning Johannes did not keep us in suspense for long and as is his nature he tracked them down with apparent ease. When the call came in that he had found them and we could respond, we didn’t need a second invitation and made our way to the sighting to welcome the White Lion’s back!Here’s hoping they will find peace and settle in our area, for now though we are very grateful to have them back.
