I am SO jealous!! We saw her on Friday morning last week and were hoping she would call her cub to no avail…
The Watcheche Female has a new cub, hidden away in the southern parts of Londolozi. An exceptional spot by Tracker Mike Sithole led us straight to this golden leopard sitting high up in a Marula tree. Next to her was a half eaten Impala neatly hoisted. We sat admiring her beauty as she fed for over half an hour. During this time we noticed her swollen teats indicating that she was nursing. I was excited but did not want to tempt fate. Hearts started beating faster as she descended the tree and started calling. Mesmerized by what was unfolding in front of us, we sat in absolute silence. Suddenly a little head popped out through the grass and came bounding to mom… A new addition to the Leopards of Londolozi!

Julia, it must have been quite a moment to be the first people to discover a brand new cub. Thanks for the comments and we look forward to putting up more clips and posts on this little cub in the future. Rich
