It’s so fantastic, Alistair, to see the beautiful Nanga female again! I first saw her in 2013 while at Londolozi and she, and the Tamboti female as well, quickly became my favourite Leopards. We all remember well the beautiful little blue-eyed cub that she had a little more than a year ago and mourned his loss when he didn’t survive. I have thought of her often over the past year and wondered where she’d gone, so thank you for the update. She looks to be in great shape and lovely to see new little cubs. I look forward to further updates on Nanga and hoping her cubs stay safe.

In our three trips to Londolozi I have photographed numerous Leopards, but never a tiny cub. Great, great photos to remind me I must return again and continue to try!

Thank you for sharing this beautiful sighting and pictures! When exactly was this?, and is the Anderson male the father?

Oh WOW….thanks so much for posting this. We had a similar experience with Nanga’s first litter about 3 years ago. I love this leopard and am so excited to hear of her. Our experience is also one that lives on in my heart….such a loving mother and beautiful leopard. Her cubs were so amazing, coming right up to the vehicle at a very young age. You’ve made my day!

Great blog,hopefully the Nanga female will be successful in raising this litter.At least the cubs should be safe from marauding male leopards with the Anderson male patrolling the area,you hardly ever hear of any male leopards in his territory.

You are so lucky to be able to enjoy all these experiences on an almost daily basis.

I was born in South Africa but have lived in Australia for the past 30 years…..

Part of my family still live in South Africa and I travel back there almost every year with my now adult children

We always head straight for the Kruger Park for at least a week…..and absolutely love it.

I miss the Kruger Park so much when I return to Sydney…..but your daily blogs and wonderful pictures help me at least be a part of the daily life in the park even from so far away

Thank you for sharing….

I fell in love with the Nanga female at first sight (here, not in person unfortunately!). It seems I haven’t read anything on her in awhile. So great to see her looking as beautiful as ever….and new cubs!! Love all the photos, thank you!!

Great blog Alistair, having been luck enough to see the Nanga female and one of the two cubs over the weekend I can appreciate how incredible the sightings must have been. Great pics as well! Looking forward to more updates as these cubs grow up.
