Marsh Pride, River Pride and Double Cross Prides.

Dear Friends, The Maasai Mara is looking great after both Migrations arrive, meaning the Loita and the Seregeti Migration, In the last few days in the office I visited a lot of prides in the Mara, the Marsh Pride, River Pride also known as Rekero Pride, Double Cross pride which are two together, and the last The breakaway pride, This how I observe, in the Marsh, the pride had split into few members due to breading and food, they were every where from Bila Shaka to Lake Nakuru all the way towards Manager Crossing, what is interesting is Scar the Main Male in the pride does not leave the Cubs he is alway the best Dad of the 4 masketies, while the three brothers Sikio, Murani, and Hunter are busy patrolling the Boarders of the Territories, I found this Males way out very Close to Rekero Pride and they look like soon they will take over, The Marsh Pride will be ok no trouble so far but if the father of the Pride keep going too far who know any other Males could come in and trouble Scar but it will be temporary since the females are many it will take some time for any males to take over, however nothing could stop any intrudes from Making trouble. Siana our main Hunter who was save buy all our friends, Governors Camp Maasai Mara Rangers and Kws, she and her Cubs are strong and well I was happy with my Guest to see her Pulling a whole Wildebeest who she kill what good news is this well done you all who help our very Siana, Rekero Pride, as much as I love and well come the new Cubs fathered by Lipstick and Blackly, this pride is close to ready take off, and I can see the Masketies preparing for an attack, they have already did it and so much loose and now every now and then they arrive on the Territory that had been patrol and own by Blacky and Lipstick, they have lost Paradise to Hunters and Morani, the Serena Pup House pride is also lost and they have started to cross the River on the Mara Triangle and Nothing will stop the Masketies Coalition at this Point, But what will happen to the New Cubs at Rekero Crossing ? At Rhino Ridge where the Breakaway is staying under the watch of Sikio I can now conform one Female is gone, its had been too long since I last sow her and we will never now what happen, The Ridge is a hot zone always will be and this pride will see lots of trouble from New Males moving in and out with the migration be it from the Conservancies east OOC, Mara North or Naboisho, or from the South Seregeti or Eastern Plains most of the Nomadic Males go through Topi Plains and Rhino ridge over the years, Last time a days I meet the pride at the edge of Rhino ridge they are with new Males this are Old OOC Males, Sala and Cheza but nothing is going to be permanent with this Old males they are just passing on running way from Nick and David, who had taken over a lot of prides on the OOC conservancy, Moja is doing well and his Mum may be having Cubs she is not around as much with him and the new Cubs will be Lipstick and Blacky, We will update you soon on who Moja is doing and his mum, Double Cross pride is doing just fine but lots of problems here, Little Notchers arrive here and Kill 4 cubs while there Daddy are busy at OOC taking over another Pride and though they cubs who are in the pride look good I am not sure of there long success, this young males are very big and strong its a worry, the small pride on the side of the Double Cross, 2 females 2 cubs look like doing better, they cubs are fantastic and well grown up I have more hope on them than the Main Pride, if they stay out of trouble, David and Nick have been busy especially Nick I have not seen him for nearly 3 months, I had news from our friends from OOC that he is well busy with Enkuyanai Pride, while David is another Good Daddy he love looking after they two pride small pride by Double Cross, But will he be able to take the pressure from Little Notchers? More News soon and have a good start on our Maasai mara, Salaams, Jackson Looseyia,

Lemek Pride

This where I started my Job as a Guide in the Mara in 1987, I was young full on and exited and curious, We so a lot of Lions then, every place we went east or west will find lions in two's or singles, a sign of health in any eco system, We open our camp in the Middle of the Maasai Mara and that made me leave the area for some times, When I came back 2010, I was shock to find a pride of 28 lions to 4 only, I had no words to speak off what happen, I was so sad but still love the place, soon after I followed the pride again and today they are 5 big Lioness and 4 subs, a few Males are here and there Lemek its coming back again thank to the conservation efforts around the Conservancy, Like Mara North, and Olchoro, The Large family from Mara North will help a great deal the lions population in this place, Now they are nearly 40 lions in one pride for sure its a matter of time before we witness an explosion of lions in Lemek, Olchoro, Mara North, Conservancy, I am exited again I am witnessing new energy efforts and love from the community than every before, Thank You all, Jackson Looseyia,

From Bella to Olive

Good evening my dear friends, Happy Easter to every one of you wherever your around the Globe, I had followed Bella the queen of stealth on the Talek river banks and on many Crossings, she was a star as you know it, I sow last when she was just about to head home and I knew this was the end of her, intact she had a skin problem before she went some where to sleep for good, I would suspect it was cancer, because for nearly a year I had followed her and the problem was getting bad every months though she was able to Kill for her self, I know it was close to her end, but the Talek River was not left empty her Daughter Olive was taking charge of the River, We in the office started the same thing fowling her on our daily game drives, and we sow her in many times, she did help us Guides a lot every time you would like to see a leopard it was almost guaranteed we will find her today or the next day, we love her so much she was a mother, a Champion, and friendly, When Olive left us the Talek river was empty we will go for days some times for weeks before we found Bahati or her little sister Saba, it will take some time for the adjustment to take place it will be ok but never the same, Though we have a lot of leopards this days in the Central Mara, like Siri near Serena Pup house, Paja, on Onkorbob, Golden Balls on Olare Orok, Talek Junction, Lorian at Top of Olkeju Rongi, Pink near Mara Toto on Intiakitiak, and the list goes on, Nothing Like meeting Olive, I do wish soon we will start to develop our relationship with her offsprings, On our Most beautiful Cuts to date Leopards is my favorite, Have a bless day, Bless Easter, Jackson Looseyia.

Nick and David Pride

Dear Friends, The Double Cross pride had gone though tough times, having Notch boys come and go the Marsh pride Males checking and going and OOC Males, David and Nick stayed no matter for as long it will take and cast to make a family, finally we sow the fruits of there patients lots of cubs from 5 lioness, some of the cubs of cause will not make it but some are proving to be good looking even last month with the begging of Long Rains, I am glad this pride in the Double cross area is going strong, the Good news is the National Reserve have been strict for the fist time I remember on illegal grazing that means the pride have a bright future,
