Cleopatra – derives from the African name for ‘Queen of the Nile’.??
Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile, joined our pride in May 2015 when she was donated by the neighbouring Kapama Game Reserve. Cleopatra had spent at least five years desperately trying to join our pride, especially to be with Mandla, breaking in and being taken home again, before she was eventually granted her wish. Cleopatra went into what can only be described as an extended state of mourning after the death of Mandla, King of Kings and King of her heart.
Cleopatra is a magnificent Queen, sometimes choosing to retreat into solitude and sometimes choosing the company of her pride which includes Tswalu, Zukhara and Matsieng.
