New Cub Is A Remarkable Traveller
Say hello to our newest lion who was born early this year to Napirai.
“This little cub is a young traveller and survivor," said Jeneria, our Field Operations and Community Manager. “The cub moves more than any cub we have ever seen.” Our team tracked Napirai and her cub (pictured above) for over 15 km (9 mi) a few weeks ago – a long journey for a cub we estimate is three-months-old.
Mother and cub walked all night, through villages and livestock areas, and settled in thick bush in the early morning. Although mothers usually hide their cubs in bushes to go hunting, Napirai does not leave her cub alone. She is constantly on the move with the young one close in tow.
We will keep you updated as we continue to monitor the little travelling cub.
