The Hoaruseb Pride

Xpl-44 Movements Xpl-37 & 38 2004 - 2011 Eco-tourism

The adult male lion (Xpl-44) was selected for the GPS collar allocated to the lions in the Hoaruseb River. Xpl-44 joined the Hoaruseb lionesses in March 2007 and came from the Hoanib/Hunkap pride. He has settled in along the Hoaruseb River and are regularly seen with the females and their cubs. "Leonardo" was shot in April 2010.
