Schobele male has his hands full

By Morné Hamlyn on June 28, 2008

The old boy is now under constant preassure for his remaining bit of territory…

Although he is in immaculate condition, the Schobele male is nearly 14 years old. At this age it is understandable and expected of him to be on his way out, but we will enjoy every second of the sightings he produces!!

  1. Great photo’s of a beautiful male!

    It is sad that the sands of time are running out for him!

    We were fortunate to enjoy him on a few occasions

  2. Wow . . . The old man sure looks majestic! He is one of the truly great icons of the camp and I look forward to learning about his uncanny ability to defy the odds of nature and stay on top.

    I hope to see him this August . . . thanks for sharing,


  3. What a guy! He was my first viewed lion back in August 2007 and I sure hope to see him again – if we can manage a return trip to SA.

    Kings Camp holds a very special place in my heart.
