Lions can communicate in a manner of ways depending on the circumstances and intentions of their interactions. The clip above illustrates the characteristic roar of a lion which informs surrounding lions of their presence and dominance in the area. This roar typically starts with a few deep roars before trailing off into a series of shorter ones. The sound of these roars can be heard an astounding 8km away . Such communications help avoid unnecessary confrontations, essential in a area with large lion populations, such as Madikwe.
