Pride History

The Natamba pride was founded by Tahzhoo in the Golden Lands in 2002. (Their previous owner, Balana, was toaded in February and he found himself in possession of the lands.) He had been living in his homeland of Uzima Valley since he came home and found his parents dead, eventually leaving them once he reached adulthood. Wandering took him to the Golden Lands where he was going to visit Nyanya and Balana, who he had come to know as a youth, but he found the lands abandoned. (This was due to a fire that had happened some time prior, ending Nabana's rule.) He set out to find others like himself who were lonely, and formed a small pride who ultimately came to settle in the Golden Lands and be known as the Natamba pride. Natamba means "Those who have found each other."

They stayed there until another fire broke out in 2005, where they were living homeless in Utatu for about a month, and then moved back to Tahzhoo's homeland, the Uzima Valley, following the final battle of the Kumalo conflict.

A large part of the pride broke away in May 2006 to reform the Kopje Valley Pride, which nearly saw the end of the Natamba, but it managed to stick it out and recover afterwards. Tahzhoo stepped down in January 2008 to his heirs, sons Ghedi and Sumi.

Two years later, a power struggle between the two kings arose causing conflict among the pride. After much deliberation Sumi and Ghedi decided to go their own ways. Sumi gathered his family and those willing to follow and headed out to find lands of his own; Ghedi remained in Uzima as the sole king of Natamba. Split nearly in half, the pride once again came close to seeing an end. Mid 2010, Ghedi goes missing leaving his son, Ryngia, to pick up the pieces.


The Golden Lands is a day's travel to the southwest of the Pride Lands. The Uzima Valley is located just to the west of the Pride Lands.
