We came across these gentlemen in January, on the H7 near Bobbejaanskraans.
Not sure if they are from the same coalition.

Interesting topic. We think we saw this coalition in 2010. It was a very wet morning and we were driving from Satara to Orpen along the H7. There was a guy in front of us who stopped, made a u-turn and raced away. He was gone in a flash, I had no chance to get his attention to turn around - he gave up on the H7 literally metres from where the lions were lying next to the road in long grass. :lol: Three we could get on a photo, and we stopped counting at 5. There were obviously more.

Mitch - looks like them. Mixture of sub-adult and fully-grown adult males. They seem to hang out in that area and further up into Timbavati Reserve.

Sounds like another coalition like the mapago boys who cause absolute havoc in mala mala, sabi sabi and sabi sands and perhaps even in kruger for a bit.

6 male lions who controlled 3 or 4 prides and could be more

i think this coalition will split up over time, even the mapogos split eventually in 3 seperate unites, 3 in one, 2 in another and 1 by himself. they were eventually killed off by nomadic male coalitions

Hi

On the 17th December we found 3 big male lions and 1 lioness at the S28/H4-2 intersection on the Lower Sabie side. We also saw them again on the 20th at the same place. Would these lions be part of the Duke pride. I saw the Duke pride on a kill in October at Duke's waterhole and then there was only one male. In May I also saw the Duke pride at the intersection on the S28 where you turn off to Duke's windmill and then there were 2 males. Would these males that we saw on the 17th and 20th December be part of the Duke pride?

Well, was the one male you saw at the waterhole also one of the three you saw at the intersection? That should answer your question.

I don't see how anybody else can.
