Lion ( Panthera Leo)
Samburu Game Reserve is home to 40 -50 lions, the highest number over a decade according to a recent research conducted by Ewaso Lions Organization. Individual Lions (males) can hold huge territories ranging from 30 to 400 square kilometers. The lionesses (females) take the lead when it comes to hunting down the prey. From time to time the Males will assist with a hunt. The prides here have a very loose structure and often break up in to smaller groups of a few females and their cubs.
