Lion Name:

Son of Marah, the name Regeus means first ‘Ray of Sunshine’ in the Latin root languages, associated with the word Regent, or Sun King.

Known for:

Generosity, pristine grooming, and simultaneously keeping his territory clear and free.


A Day of Freedom is what it costs our non-profit organisation to ensure the freedom and safety of every single one of our lions every single day –  free-roaming in the heart of their Protected Area, as is their nature-given right.

1 Day of Freedom costs: $ 85

Meet Regeus

No one knows better than Regeus, that he is a Sun King.

One of the two Akeru Brothers, he and Letaba’s legendary role is to guard the sun rising and setting on the East-West axis, in the same way as the Akeru (back-to-back God of the Ancient Egyptians), carved into the stele between the paws of the Sphinx. While his brother was the warrior-king, he is the philosopher-king, wise and laid-back, always attending to his grooming. When it comes to a royal feast, he has always been an arch opportunist; the last to respond, but the first to take the lion-share! Having sired the next generation through sacred union with Gaia, he surprised even himself in becoming a father as mighty in love as he is in protection.
