The Mara Predator Project has just started to monitor the Ridge Pride, and so we have little information on their history. However, the pride has several generations of females, and they have successfully raised a number of cubs. 

The Ridge Pride males, Naengop and Olchore, have fathered cubs belonging to Nguro and Mama Kali, but unfortunately, these cubs have been killed by the Moniko Pride. These males have also mated with several females from the Enkoyonai Pride, including Nashipai and Naibor, when their usual prides males are away with the Moniko Pride.


We know that the Ridge Pride spend a lot of their time in the Talek region of the Masai Mara National Reserve. With regular monitoring, we will be able to estimate their total home range.
