Mandla – whose name means “power”.
Roaring, morning grumpiness, lengthly back-roars at night, beautiful eyes, patrolling Shidolo camp borders.
The eldest of the bunch! Rescued from a canned hunting camp, Mandla now roams freely in his endemic habitat of Greater Timbavati bushveld. Indigenous people of the region believe he holds the energy of true leadership on earth. Just as Nelson Mandela holds the spirit of authentic power in the human kingdom, so Mandla represents the true spirit of the inherent power of nature in the animal kingdom. The King has returned to his kingdom, ushering in a new era of true leadership and peace.
