Ingwavuma’s name derives from African roots meaning “Roar of the Creator”
Affectionate, brave and curious.
Meet Ingwavuma II
Our Little Prince, Ingwavuma II, was born on the 8:8th StarGate Portal to Marah’s son Letaba, and the glorious Khanyezi, a golden lioness who dug her way into our Heartlands from the greater Kruger system 3 years ago. This incredibly strong personality is named after the formidable Ingwavuma I, Linda Tucker’s guardian lion who was tragically hunted by an American trophy hunter in Timbavati on 22 August 2000.
Pure charm and personality, it was clear he was going to be an ambassador from day one, indicating that he would turn into a true LionHearted Leader in the very near future…
Affectionate, brave and curious, the Sun Prince stole our hearts – who can resist those inquisitive eyes and little white cheeks?
The biggest highlight for our little Prince, however, was undoubtedly the day that he finally got to meet his dad face to face. On Freedom Day (27 April), Letaba left his boma and joined his family, after ‘boma-bonding’ with Ingwavuma for a period of seven months. When Letaba met the Trio on the road after he left his boma, the lionesses were both calm and relaxed, but kept a watchful eye over little Ingwavuma. There was a lot of grooming and cheek rubbing between all of the family members, and no real aggression was shown by anyone!
