The Marsh boys are back in town after a long time with the females up at Topi Plains

HerdTracker update 02 Apr 2019 by The Marsh Pride of Lions

Chongo was spotted behaving like a true gentleman and following the cubs to have a bite while Kabibi, Rembo, Dada and Kito are all next in line for the zebra kill.

It seems the kill was actually made by Spot and Little Red – but they got chased off. Kito and Little Red both have some wounds from fighting over the meal, but at least little ones have managed to get their fill. Chong was then seen again a little while later resting with four of the Marsh males – Koshoke, Baba Yao and Kiok at the Bila Shaka area. The Marsh boys are back in town after a long time with the females up at Topi Plains.
