She reminds me of Yambilu Jordaan with her head shape and the curl in her tail, does anyone know if they were related at all ?

Hi Rosie, you can refer to this family tree to find out more about their potential relation. At present this is as much as we know about the Vomba Female’s relatives – http://www.londolozi.com/leopards/leopards-of-londolozi/sunsetbend-lineage/
Thanks for your comments, rich

Amazing and yet disturbing. I know that this is nature and of course the leopard must eat, she is beautiful and quick in her kill and yet the screams of the duiker have haunted me since I saw the video. Mental note: do not watch kill video in the future, and when on safari at Londolozi put head under jacket or blanket and hold ears tightly if animal is going in for the kill.
