Mbube, Mbube :
Imbube is one of the Zulu words for "lion." "Mbube" is addressing the lion, calling to him. Sort of pronounced like: mboo'-bay. In this game the lion is stalking the impala (a southern African buck).

  • All players form a circle.
  • Two players start the game. One is the lion, one is the impala.
  • Blindfold them both and spin them around. (Children used to just close their eyes, but the temptation to peek is so great!)
  • Players in the circle start by calling the lion, "mbube, mbube!"
  • The closer to the impala the lion gets the faster the chanting becomes. Likewise if the lion is far away the calling decreases, in volume as well as repetition.
  • If the lion has not caught the impala within a minute a new lion is chosen. If the lion catches the impala, a new impala is chosen.
