Meet Zukhara

Majestic, confident, and powerful, Zukhara has never left Matsieng’s side, unless he is enticed to do so by one of the beautiful temptresses in his pride, Cleopatra and Tswalu.

Both males have been invited to sire the next generation, so when those little royal tots arrive, we can never be sure who the father is. But what we do know is both brothers will guard and protect them with their lives. Every day as they grow into supremacy, Zukhara and Matsieng become more like their magnificent father, Mandla. The difference is that they have enjoyed freedom and prosperity from Day One as the first litter born free in the Heartlands.
