Guests at Erindi will be familiar with Etosha female and her lovely pride, consisting of her first daughter Oppeper, three sub-adult males belonging to Etosha and a sub-adult female and male produced by Oppeper.
This pride of seven have given the guides and guests epic sightings over the past year and a half. Unfortunately, the time has come and all sub-adults have to leave their mother around two years old when they become mature. The exciting thing is the anticipation of a four male coalition forming to take over Erindi.
The photo above sums up the situation. An interaction now with the pride would be met with annoyance
