Shout out to my favourite lion couple of 2017, Luwi Pride lioness 155F and Hollywood male 629M. On our very first day of field work this season, these two treated us to some amazing lion music. They had a small cub at the time and it was a pleasure to spend that magical April evening with these royals of the bush.
We watched the young cub mastering the Luwi pride tradition of climbing trees but struggling to get back down. The sighting from 20 November is probably my last of the season because of the rain and the fact Luwi river which is flowing again. The young cub from earlier in the season did not make it but 155F seems to be pregnant again. Wishing the King and Queen better luck this time and looking forward to seeing the next gen Luwi lions.
