Shaka's pride... the Mfuwe Lions.

Since the hot, dry months of October 2011, the lions of the Mfuwe pride have been busy and productive. Thanks to the fact that the pride is protected by "Shaka", a strong (and obviously verile) dominant male, a succession of new cubs have been born to at least three of the lionesses. With so many nursing mothers to choose from, and a caring father, the cubs stand a much greater chance of survival. Recent sightings would suggest that even more babies are on the way! Well done Shaka!
