Notch was the infamous lion king of Masai Mara Game Reserve. He took over the marsh pride in 2004 and ruled there for three years. After the death of his brother, he was left alone to defend his territory, but somehow he managed to save his three daughters and five sons. When three rouge male lions drove out the Notch and his sons, he did some most unusual things in the lion’s history. He took his five sons with him and fed them for a year. Now he and his sons formed a powerful coalition of 6 lions and started to conquer lion pride in 2009.
This legendary Lion coalition was named as famous Notch Coalition of Masai Mara. They took over pride in their capture of 8 feelings of pride. They have ruled over an area of almost 1000 km².In 2010 they lost their first member after a battle with a 4 km coalition. Their second member was lost in the year 2012 and presumed dead. In 2013, Notch also died due to old age as he was 14 years old. Now just three notches were left but still were in good condition named Ron; Maybe the Notch lions are not present with us still; they are in our thoughts and made a unique place in our hearts. They sired so many cubs; nowadays, their children and grandchildren rule over Masai Mara. If I had to describe this Legendary Notch Coalition in a single word, I would say they are the Rulers. And Notch-2. In 2016, Ron went missing and was never seen after, probably killed by another male lion. At the beginning of 2017, Ceaser also died due to a limp on his body. He was last seen motionless on the banks of the mara river closed to lookout hill. Now, Notch-2, the last male lion of this legendary coalition, was left alone at almost 13, but he managed to survive and conquer over a pride for two years after making a coalition with his son Spear Boy. In the year 2019, he died due to an old age of 15 years.
