Milo is a busy boy!

24 02 2011


Athena has moved, presumably with her cub(s) nearer to waterhole 2 and is now residing in a new dense thicket.  Kenge, who has not been seen for several days now and is assumed to have denned to produce her litter has chosen an even denser thicket in the Masai Mara area not far from waterhole one.

And what of the rest of the pride?  Well they are, shall we say, busy.  Yesterday morning they were in the Etosha area before moving eastwards into Kruger for the afternoon.  Milo concentrated on mating with Phyre whilst the Ns watched. 

By this morning Kwali, Ashanti and Milo were back in Etosha with Milo getting it on with Ashanti before he headed to Hwange to meet up with Phyre again.  The Ns on the other hand were in Masai Mara.  Later in the day Kwali and Ashanti joined Milo and Phyre who were still mating, whilst the Ns moved to Amboseli. 

So at least one cub born, more about to be born, or already have, and Milo getting friendly with two more females.  The pride is growing.

For those who think all these place names are meaningless, we have posted a map of the in the right hand bar to refer to.  Just clock on the icon for a larger version.
