Such amazing photos, I have really succumbed to the magic of the Mashaba Female and her cub.

Dear Nick. Could you confirm that 5/5- Airstrip male has been killed by Tsalala young males? Best. Yves

Hi Yves. Yes this is sadly correct. He was killed about a week ago and we think it was in fact by the Tsalala Pride. We will be putting up a post shortly to explain the details and to pay tribute to him. Thanks, Amy

Beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing. What an amazing Leopard, she’s almost the size of her mother, and yet she still tries to “surf”. Priceless

Wow! How amazing and great photography, thank you. Over a period of many years I have observed leopards at Ingwelala and have never seen anything so special!

Great pictures Nick! It will be sad to see them part, but Mashaba has taken good care of her cub and it’s so fantastic to see that she’s survived to independence (shortly).

Thank you Amy for this info (despite the fact that I would prefer an other new..). I spent so many time with this cat… Kind regards. Yves

how incredibly beautiful the cub has grown up to be. I still remain in awe when I first saw the two cubs being brought to a kill for the first time almost a year ago by the stunning Mashaba female and how heartbroken I was to learn of the male cub’s demise. He was always so brave and independent while the female cub was the more timid of the two. I can’t attach pics here, otherwise i could share a photo (amatuerish!) of them walking to the kill.

What a wonderful sighting! My favorite animal of the African bush is the Leopard! I love all the critters for they all have such wonderfully diverse characters, but leopards speak to my heart. Thank you for sharing these fabulous beauties.
