More hope for the Marsh Pride Legacy

More hope for the Marsh Pride Legacy: Pamoja (Yaya’s daughter) have been mating with Koshoke (one of the six Marsh Boys), just a few days ago.

However, Dada, Kito and Kabibi along with their cubs, were captured resting close to the Governors’ Camp. The cubs are thriving, becoming more and more confident – playing fights with each other and simply enjoying all the wonders of the Masai Mara.

The recent rainfalls seem to have had an enormous effect on Yaya

The recent rainfalls seem to have had an enormous effect on Yaya!

For the last few weeks, she have been mating with Baba Yao. But, last week her affection has turned to Kibogoyo (one of the six Marsh Males). The photos below show Yaya and Kibogoyo mating despite the heavy rain pouring – the guests witnessed an impressive sound show of roaring and thunder, while Yaya rolled on the mud until she was the same colour as the earth.

However, Baba Yao and Koshoke (both the six Marsh Males) were seen laying low nearby but soon moved towards a termite mount which gave them better elevation to watch the show.

Get closer than you could ever imagine to Africa’s most incredible wildlife. Feel the breath of the lion and the thundering of the gnu’s hoofs, all from the safety of our guided game drive or your own vehicle: http://bit.ly/2ULQpgM

Little Red taking care of Spot’s cubs, while Spot was sleeping nearby

Little Red taking care of Spot’s cubs, while Spot was sleeping nearby. The two daughters of Siena (one of the original Marsh Pride females) are always together. We are hoping the cubs will adopt this behaviour into adulthood!

Yaya was captured with Baba Yao, one of the six Marsh males. He has been trying to mate with her for the last few weeks – they are therefore spending a lot of time together and this morning they were spotted feeding on zebra together.

Spotted last night enjoying a beautiful sundowner

The Marsh Pride females – Kabibi, Rembo, Dada and Kito and their cubs were spotted last night enjoying a beautiful sundowner as they pondered on the choice of game in the distance, wondering what they might hunt that evening.

Meanwhile, a really nice sighting of Kibogoyo and Koshoke relaxing at the Bilashaka area. The two males are constantly on the go as they look for mating opportunities between the Marsh Pride and the Tope Pride females.

Let’s hope they made it back without a confrontation with the Marsh females and their cubs

Trespasser! ‘This is Blonde’, one of the Olololo males was spotted feeding on buffalo with females and youngsters of the River-line pride (from the Mara Triangle), at the entrance of Governors Private Camp! They are known to cross over into the Marsh Pride territory, make a kill, and rush back home before they get caught.

Let’s hope they made it back without a confrontation with the Marsh females and their cubs!

Marsh Pride Update

Another close call with buffalo for Kabibi, Rembo, Dada, Kito and their seven remaining cubs!

Together with Koshoke (male), they were all feeding on a zebra kill when they suddenly found themselves surrounded by a herd of angry buffalo. As usual, the buffalo chased them away, including the cubs who were hesitant at first abandon their meal, but later returned to feed again leaving the cubs to watch from a distance.

Meanwhile, Pamoja and Nusu Mkia (Yaya’s daughters) have been hunting a lot of warthogs lately. On this particular occasion, Yaya was waiting and watching not too far from them, possibly hoping that they allow her to join the meal if they succeeded. Unfortunately, they missed the warthogs.

Final photos show Yaya resting in the thicket with Baba Yao. They were actually not too far from the others with the zebra kill – the buffalo tried to chase them away too but they seemed less concerned than the others with the young cubs. Safari guide Moses Manduku will be keeping an eye on this pair to see if any mating takes place.
