From J&A's Facebook Page - Saturday 28th September 2013

"We left Nairobi for the Mara on the morning of the 21st September, thrilled to be heading home to this most beautiful corner of Eden. Like all Kenyans we were shocked and devastated as word spread of the appalling terrorist attack on the We...stgate Mall that same morning. We were filled with anxiety over the next few hours as we tried in vain to contact our daughter Alia and Grandson who live in Nairobi and regularly visit Westgate at the weekends. Thankfully we later heard that they were safe – Alia had been at the Safari Sevens. But it made the unfolding events all the more real and poignant. The loss of life and unimaginable suffering endured by people taken hostage is almost beyond belief. Our hearts and love go out to all concerned. The acts of bravery shown by our Security Forces and their allies, and members of the general public, have been truly inspiring. The resilience of Kenyans in their hour of need was there for all to see. As President Kenyatta said: “Our head is bloodied, but unbowed….” At this time we need Kenya’s friends around the world to stand alongside us. Many have written to express kind words of support and we look forward to welcoming all of you to this amazing country of ours. There is nowhere quite like Kenya.

We have been spending time in the company of the Marsh Pride – our favourite pride of lions. The great migration is flooding into the Musiara area, with tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebras trekking across the grassy plains in the Triangle across the river from Governor’s Camp. Others have been massing to the south of the Talek River.

Sadly, we heard word in the last few days of the death of Olive the leopard – daughter of Bella and older sister of Chui. We were told that she was killed by lions – the leopard’s greatest rival along with the spotted hyenas. We first saw Olive as a young cub when filming Big Cat Diary in 2000. She turned out to be an amazing mother, wise and cautious, raising 7 cubs to maturity – Ayah, Binti, Kali, Nkyoni, Paja, Bahati and Saba (3 males and 4 females). We will miss her.".

From J&A's Facebook Page - Sunday 29th September 2013

"Just been watching thousands of wildebeest pouring across the Talek River headed south. Never fails to fill one with awe to see the spectacle of the Great Migration in full spate. To put things in perspective – a dose of reality – we passed a group of young male lions (Notch and his Boys offspring we are told) who were apparently feeding on a Masai cow.

Conflict between predators and domestic stock is a major cause of lion mortality – Dr Stephanie Dloniak’s excellent predator study completed in 2005 showed a 33% drop in the number of lionesses in the Reserve since Dr Joseph Ogutu’s 1990-02 census. Overall there were 40% less lions between 1991 and 2005. Ogutu identified 20 prides of lions in the Reserve (some were boundary prides sharing territory with the Masai to the North and East of the Reserve – and some had territories that overlapped the Mara-Serengeti. Dloniak found 19 prides in 2005 highlighting the continuity of pride territories over time. Of these, 5 territories were located entirely within the Reserve. 5 territories overlapped the Mara-Serengeti, and 9 territories overlapped the Reserve and surrounding Masailand. This highlights how important the Wildlife Conservancies are in providing additional habitat for all the big cats. The reason for the decline in the lion population was conflict with pastoralists, loss of habitat, and changes to the nature of the habitat. The Reserve is more open – less forests and thickets – than 30-40 years ago with less cover for lions to rest up in during the day and less hiding places for their cubs. In some areas there is less natural prey for the lions – due to changes in the habitat and to meat poaching".

Must have been really frightening for them when they could'nt contact their daughter, and grandson after the attack, so glad they are safe. Really sad about the drop in Lion numbers, again caused by the onslaught on habitat by humans, and the conflict with local communities. I nteresting that Jonathan said he passed a group of young male Lion offspring of Notch, and his boys. I wonder if thats going to be the start of a new coalition

Would be good if it was a new coalition WS Cool


From J&A's Facebook Page - Thursday 3rd October 2013

"A final salute to Olive – what joy she brought to so many. We will be hoping to see her daughter Bahati later this month.

Angie and I have just finished filming a 10 day shoot in the Mara with Channel 9′s 60 Minutes Australia. What an ace group of professionals. Producer Gareth Harvey set the shoot up and he brought along some of the best resources in the business – Soundman Jason, Cameraman Greg and Reporter Ray along with our local ace cameraman Warren Samuels. The enthusiasm for their work was infectious and made being in the Mara even better than usual. The Marsh Pride put on a wonderful show for us – Scarface and Masikia were filmed mating with White Eye’s daughter – a beautiful young lioness who has been facing a tough time as a young adult surplus to the needs of the pride. Sienna and Charm have be making it very clear to the younger generation of lionesses – 5 in total – that they are no longer welcome in the Marsh Pride territory. But t...hings could change as the third adult lioness – Bibi, who was born in 1998 – is in the twilight of her life. So it could well be that in the next few years the 5 younger lionesses are able to reclaim their birthright – and that Sienna and Charm allow them back (or are forced to do so or be exiled themselves). This happened with the 3 Graces: Sienna, Charm and Joy, who after initially being forced to avoid contact where possible with their older relatives were eventually able to rejoin the main pride. Sienna and Charm joined up again with White Eye and Bibi after Red disappeared.

We filmed the youngsters in the Marsh Pride (who range in age from just under a year to around 1.5 years old) hunting wart hog piglets, as well as a group of 3 young cheetahs hunting Thomson’s gazelles. We witnessed an amazing hail storm and some wonderful river crossings – the Mara, Talek and Ntiakitiak – and epic balloon ride over the migration in the Mara Triangle.

The Mara always delivers and we will soon be back again! We fly down on Saturday for our annual Celebration of Wildlife with Prestige Promotions staying at Little Governors for 6 nights. Then after another brief visit home to see Alia and our Grandson – and Little Cat, Simba and the crew – we head for Rekero for a week for our annual October safari to welcome old friends back to Kenya. Next we head north to Mara North Conservancy for 6 nights staying at Kicheche Acacia Valley Camp with Experience Seminars".

Thanks Doogs wonderful update on the Marsh Pride from Jonathan, I really hope that the younger females are allowed to stay with the pride as it really is the start of a new fresh begining for the Pride. Hopefully Bibi will be around for a bit longer. We've lost so many of our favourites lately
