The past couple of weeks in Ngamo have been ones of revelry for the research team with the pride having not one but three birthdays to celebrate.
The first of these celebrations was on the 31st of October as the oldest females in the pride, Kenge and Kwali, celebrated their 8th birthday. Their day began with the girls and the cubs resting together in the long grasslands of Serengeti West. As the temperatures were somewhat cooler than those of recent days the pride took sensible shelter from the gusty winds inside a thicket. It was there that they spent most of the day, only to make an occasional appearance to stretch their legs before going back into the thicket. Meanwhile Milo spent the day resting alone in Etosha, obviously taking some time out for himself.
