Flavia has split from the pride (and her 14 month old cubs) and begun mating with the newly arrived Xivulo Coalition. Some of Gorongosa’s safari guides captured this fierce moment ! This male (we are calling Xivulo M2) showed up out of the blue with one of the Park’s oldest males a few months ago. They have seized the core area of the Sungue range and have been mating with two of Nginga’s recently claimed courts – Flavia and Pandora. New cubs are likely on the horizon this year or early next year – stay tuned!
