Hello,

we saw this lovely lady on June 5 around 11am on the Vulkani loop. Can someone help me with her name ? Just a bit later at the 37/38 juntion there had been 2 young males with their warthog kill, but they had dragged it off by the time we got there and could no longer be seen. Thanks in advance !

Hi kellyee,
Lovely photos! This looks like Aardlam - she is missing the black tip to her tail. Aardlam is one of the original 6 lions that were translocated here from the Kgalagadi.

Thanks so much for your reply Megan, I thought it might be but I wasn't sure if any of her offspring had the same white tail. We really didn't go expecting to see lions so this was really a great surprise. Thanks again !

After the rain last Saturday, Gina and her boys must have took mud baths. Even their faces was full of mud.

Then one of the boys walk through the wet bushes and appear with a cleaner face...

We have been in Addo for a couple of days and were lucky enough to see two beautiful male lions on the domkrag loop. We are not experts on the lions in Addo. Would anyone have an who hangs out in this area. It would be interesting to know what lions are still in Addo.
Regards

Only guesswork here, Readles, as last time we were in Addo (March 2012)
all the lions were in the southern section of the park. However, two males
parted from their mum shortly after that, so maybe it's them who establish a new territory. :hmz:

Wonder if they were named by now?

Hi Readles,

I haven't seen Addo lions for a while now, but if they were not the two young brothers, then it should be Roy (Megan's brother) who should be a mature black maned lion by now, and Nomad who is older, but lighter maned from what I see in the pictures.
Need to get back to see them myself!
Thanks for sharing, and God bless,

Friedrich von Hörsten

We are visiting end of Sept, and really hope to see these fellows :D

Hi DB (DP) see you still remember the old name, body has not changed much !!! :) also see that you are quite cold where you are!
Yes DB this was on a tourist road , just about 2km on the Harveys loop road below Addo heights. I am off on patrol from Tuesday at Darlington and will be back about 10 Sept. Give me a call when you are here.
I also had a fab time for a month on patrol in KNP, if I remember I met tou at Croc Bridge just as I finished my stint there and was coming back home.
Those boys really are great, there were two of them. I don't get much into Addo anymore as I am mainly at Darlington.
Have a look in the CC thread as well, I posted there - don't know when I will get back on the threads
again as I am very busy at Darligton/Addo.
