Enter the world of the Vumbi pride.

In a remote corner of the Serengeti, the Vumbi lion pride battles high heat, shortages of food and water and a dangerous rival coalition in its struggle to survive.

“Having just returned for the last of our 3 shoots, we found the Vumbi pride walking toward a rain storm with both resident males Cboy and Hildur. Hildur was looking cautious and several of the cubs approached him, one young female even playfully jumped on his back. Inexplicably Hildur started to run and continued to run for 5 miles (we stayed with him until dark). He was headed to the territory of another pride where we found him consorting the next day."…

Hildur, C-Boy’s partner, frequently makes a long run to visit the Simba East pride. A coalition that controls two prides must maintain vigilance over both.

Death is always near, and teamwork is essential on the Serengeti—even for a magnificent, dark-maned male known as C-Boy.
