THIS IS A LIONESS.
Yip, you read that right. This is the infamous lioness roaming around Mombo Camp in the heart of the Okavango Delta. It is simply incredible to see, truly one of a kind!!
She is known locally as Mmamoriri, and is 11 years old. When side by side with the pride male, the difference is obvious, she is much smaller. That said she is in incredible condition & very muscular!
When Mo and I were at Mombo she spent her days looking after her sister’s cubs and stayed well away from the males who would certainly have killed her had she sought to join the pride at any time.
