Introducing Notch & the Boys

August 31st, 2012

The Lion King has nothing on these lions! There has never been a coalition of males quite like Notch and The Boys. Notch is the ‘Big Daddy’ of lions, one of the most successful pride males that we have ever had the pleasure of watching. He is twelve years old and past his prime but you would hardly know it! With his younger relatives as back-up (there were 5 of them at one point) Notch and The Boys control a vast area of prime lion territory in the northern Mara, terrorizing rival males and mating with as many females as they can. Such is their power that killing hippos and buffalos is their speciality.
