These are the names of two lion cubs sired by Sylvester‚ the most famous South-African lion that twice went on a walkabout from the Karoo National Park‚ has finally settled down in his new home and started a family.
After mating with Angel‚ one of two lionesses at Kuzuko Lodge in the Eastern Cape‚ Sylvester is the father of two cubs‚ named, Gamka and Kambro, Koi-San names for two medicinal plants found only in the Karroo where they live. The two, pictured above, are now a year old and Kambro is sporting the first tufts of what promises to be every bit as flamboyant a mane as his famous dad’s.
The 12 month-old youngsters were photographed recently by reserve staff for the first time on Monday‚ they are staying close to Angel most of the day. Angel is one of two orphaned sisters at Kuzuko Lodge.
