Lions will feast on a particular carcass for however long it takes to satisfy their appetites, and have a feeding hierarchy, structured in such a way that the strongest most dominant males eat the prized parts of the kill, followed by the females, younger lions and cubs.
In the Tuli area what can often be heard is the frightening roar of success over a kill by male Lions followed by a particular series of grunts of satisfaction.
These long distance roars travel and spread across the vast plains of Tuli, alerting Jackals and Hyena to the fact that there has been a kill. Consequently Lions often need to defend their kill from these other predators.
After the hunt, Lions tend to wade across the vast majestic land, relaxing under the enormous trees to regain their energy and moving towards the water holes as they do not receive enough liquid from the fluids of their kill.Lions reach maturity by the age of 5 and can live for up to 10 years or more, with dominant younger Lions continually taking over the leadership. They dominate the females and weaker older males.Rare Black Manned Lions are quite common in the Tuli area and draw lots of tourists and experts who are studying them. It would seem that they are dominant over Blonde Manned Lions, and that the Lionesses seem more attracted to the Black Manned Lions. Due to their great strength and rarity they are an absolute highlight of a Tuli Block safari.
