I have pictures of the Camp Pan Male all over the walls of my bedroom so I can gaze upon his magnificent being every morning & night. We spent some wonderful moments with him in March.

Helen,
As usual, a beautiful job of teaching us about the history of the animals we have the privilege of seeing when we are at Londolozi. Thanks to Enoch and you, we were able to get up close and personal for an hour and 10 minutes.

Glad you are back from break. Hope James’ FOMO wasn’t catching.

15 llitters with 6 females? OMG! And how many of those cubs survived? And I thought his only mates were the Vomba, Maxabeni and Tamboti Female! Which other females did he have cubs with? And did any of them make it? Truly a legendary male.

Beautiful photographs of my favourite leopard and his latest progeny! So pleased to see Camp Pan doing so well. Cannot wait to get back to Londolozi in two weeks time.

If it had not been for Helen-the author of this blog and our ranger and our Tracker Enoch, we would never have gotten the images! What expertise they both have! Still cannot believe that Enoch could hear the signals that lead Helen to drive to this spot. And then Helen worked to get us in position to do the photos. They are two of the reasons that our trip to Londolozi was so amazing!
