I have watched this particular piece before..it still crushes me. But it reinforces the basic instinct, a mother’s love is eternal, through life and death. So sad to watch…but what a good mum! Good to know her lineage perseveres at Londolozi!!

Too true Geri, much like the post on the lioness saving her cub a few weeks back it is interesting to see how a mothers love is represented with a different member of the cat family. Thanks as always for your comment.rich

I am really enjoying this wonderful series on the earlier Leopard’s of Londolozi with John Varty very informative , really interesting and extremly sad at times, must have been very difficult to film but thankyou for the series.

Pleasure Kerry, I have no doubt it would have been an incredibly difficult sighting to witness, even watching the footage makes me sad. Glad you found it informative nonetheless. Thanks for your comments. Rich

Hello I just seen this documentary a few weeks ago and cried my eyes out! I can’t even begin to explain the emotion I feel for this beauty ,the way she allowed everyone to be part of her is a privilege on all levels. How special to follow her and know every mark has a battle story to be told. The love of a mother is something not to be reckoned with,no matter what form we are,human and animal a mothers instinct is to protect.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful heart wrenching story,there is hope for the future and we all need to be one.

Thank you so very much and again I am truly touched beyond words.Linda
