I will miss Sean – he was an inspiration during our two recent visits to Londolozi and together with Robbie made a unique and wonderful team.. so knowledgable and thoughtful and so much fun.

He will be sorely missed – but Sean I wish you every happiness and success in your new life! What happened to the Xidulu female.. did I miss a blog?? That is also very sad and do hope her cubs can survive on their own… as I think they are normally with their mother for up to 2 years?

OMG – What happened to the Xidulu female? I’ve looked back through all the weeks happening and can’t find anything telling of her demise! I’m so saddened to hear of her passing.

Really nice blog Callum. Sad that Sean and David have departed Londolozi, but guess they are movingon to greater things. Very sad also about Xidulu – hope and pray that her two cubbies will survive. Nice pics also Callum and thanks for sharing.

Xidulu/Kikilezi was found by MalaMala, on the side of the road. It appears she had been mauled by lions.

Are the orphaned cubs of the Xidulu Female still alive? Haven’t seen any updates about them recently and am keen to know if they’ve made it.

Sadly we haven’t seen them on Londolozi Callum and haven’t heard any news of them from Mala Mala either..

Oh no, that’s sad to hear. I guess it does happen a lot even with cubs who get to stay with their mothers for 18 months, become independent and then just vanish and are never seen again. It’s always sad but hopefully new cubs of other females will survive.
