A female in the Ross pride gave birth to a white cub a few months ago. The Ross pride is named after the farm, which straddles Argyle Road and is thus partly in the Klaserie and partly in the Timbavati.

A white lion was seen on the tar road between Klaserie and Orpen Gate.

And then the white hippo's, at just about every pool in every camp, but they turn red after a few minutes in the bushveld sun, so I don't know if that counts. :wink:

:funny: :congrats:

Sorry to be so pedantic, but this is about as useful as a R9 note!

When?
By whom?
How far from where?
On the road or from the road?
If from, left or right from Klaserie?

My reading is that the last confirmed sighting of a white lion (wild) was 1994. Maybe someone had a few too many Windhoek :wink:

This is the link to Jurie Moolman's photo of the white lion that he saw.

Reading the comments "They crossed from Sandringham to Andover, owners etc were alerted. I am still waiting to hear if the lions have been retrieved"

So they were not REAL wild lions they had escaped. Was really hoping real wild white lion had returned to the wild. Oh well we can live in hope.

Could someone please help me... :?
I was under the impression we still had some white lions in the Kruger/Timbavati area
Does anyone know IF there ARE still any white lions in the wild?
I was told by an australian zoologist that there are no white lions left in the wild
and only 300 worldwide in breeding captivity
And a breeding pair of white lions in captivity in australia
have recently given birth to two little white cubs, who have been separated from the parents,
to be hand reared, to keep them used to humans,
they will be sent to other breeding "zoos" for breeding purposes.

I did not want to make comment in case I had the incorrect "impression"
and would appreciate IF someone could enlighten me
Thanks :)

There are still white lions in the greater Kruger area. They frequent the area of the Klaserie/Timbavati/Umbabat portions of the extended Kruger area. We have seen them there about 2 years ago. So, don't believe your Australian zoologist.
