It just keeps on getting better at the Ranch with three new lion cubs sighted this month. Our guests were fortunate enough to witness these playful and inquisitive cubs, as well as have the unique privilege to name them. Therefore we are proud to announce the arrival of Enzo, Babi and Nala to the Conservancy. We shall determine the sex of the cubs in the weeks ahead and let you know.
Three 19-month old lions currently on the Conservancy have progressed out of their childhood and are today practicing their hunting skills at the dam most afternoons. Unfortunately, Duffus the male lion has been ruining the hunts; much to the entertainment of our clients and to the disappointment of his two sisters.
A pride of lions are making regular night-time appearances in camp after visiting the waterhole situated a hundred yards in front of the dining tent. They seem very happy with the presence of Zebra, Wildebeest and other game that now hang out by the camp. Chris our camp manager, says there are 4 lions in this particular pride, with another pride of 6 about a mile away where the lodge will be built.
Bernard Kissui who studies lion in the Tarangire ecosystem, is a frequent visitor to the Conservancy and has been monitoring lion in the area over several years. He will be particularly encouraged by this news and the presence of another pride of 22 lion that Chris encountered within the conservancy about 10 days back. Their presence is a sure sign of the rapid recovery of wildlife in the area.
