Wonderful diversity of wildlife at Londolozi. Everyday can bring the new and unexpected.

Hi James we picked up the Anderson on the Nkorho Facebook page this week north east of you. Do you have an idea of the size of his territory as when we have been out looking we always went north west. Has he moved territory ? Has he ever been seen South of the river? We have still yet to see him so those that do it is a real privilege.

Mike as far as I know he hasn’t been sen south of the river. He’s been seen IN the river, close up against the northern bank, growling at the Flat Rock male, but I’m unaware of any incursions to the south. We’ve often seen leopards using natural barriers like the river as territorial boundaries, so we can presume that that’s what he/they are doing. His territory effectively encompasses about 3/4 of Marthly (the section of Londolozi north of the river), with only the eastern corner being occupied by the Senegal Bush Male.
He has certainly pushed south over the last year or so, but for now looks pretty established.
He has been seen about 1km west of Londolozi in Ottawa, but how far north of us he goes I can’t say for sure.
I’ll try find out…

Thanks James for the invites really appreciated. So how many females do you have that venture north of the river understanding that they will mate with more than one male. Would love to see a current map of you male and female leopards with overlaps thanks mike
