SHELEPH, we bought our book in Twee Rivieren.

This young Male was spotted at Kousant in December 2012.

Agree with Jan van Wyk - the dominant male of the Kij Kij Rooiputs area is the most impressive specimen I've seen in my entire life. He is called Mufasa Jnr by Hannes Lochner.

Here are some of my photos of him captured in November 2012...

Dear Jan van Wyk
Thank you for your reply. I phoned Twee Rivieren and had no joy; no book available. Will check again in May 2013.
Beautiful pictures you have taken of the lions. WOW!

Here are the Polentswa twins, the one name is Jan, not sure of his brother. I was informed they could be the sons of Ousus, not sure as all cats look alike :hmz: :hmz: :D :D :D

Wow great images Morkel and PRWIN :clap: :clap:

The Kij Kij Male have a younger companion. Still got a few years to go to match his brother, but still a beautiful Male.
