He is doing very well. He is a friendly little lion so is more likely to be seen by our guests. He loves spending time with the bones left over from his meat, so sometimes we hear him growling protectively in the bushes. He also loves chewing on the remaining skin.
Ma Juah and Achee have been looking at him. Achee is very friendly, however MJ is very protective and she doesn’t want Achee to make any eyes at Sinbad. Sinbad returns Achee’s interest too, but MJ is always watching them. Not in a bad way, it is just her way, being like that.
They look good, always out and about. They are very relaxed with each other, they are always playful and love to do their wrestling thing.
Nimira is very sharp, always on the look out. I saw her the other day trying to tackle a mongoose that got into the camp. It was during the fence patrol when I saw this happening, it happened so fast and she was so fast after it, however the mongoose was lucky and got away. You could see she was very frustrated with herself. However she had her brothers to distract her as they got interested when they saw her running and came to see what was going on.

Generally these old timers are doing well and they look great. We do not see them much but we hear them - they are very vocal! Our guests at Bushman River Lodge, Sarili Lodge, Longlee Manor and Riverdene say they can hear them.
