This Week at Angama

Amidst the much welcomed rain this week, we pay a visit to the brand new cub of the Egyptian Pride and Robert finds out what it's like to be charged by a leopard first-hand

The hard-working lionesses of the Mara dominated Robert’s sightings this week – from the inimitable Mama Kali, to a proud new mother in the Inselberg Pride

With some incredible lion cub sightings and a long-awaited reunion with a particular leopard, the year is off to a great start so far, writes Robert

In our last instalment of 2021, Adam documents the highly-charged lion dynamics unfolding in the Mara, setting the scene for a dramatic New Year
