I would love to have seen him climb the tree! I assume it was too dark to get any pictures of this?

I agree! What a great sighting, and too bad there were no pictures or video.

There is a video Jeff, see above. Not sure why it didn’t appear the first time.

I can only imagine the pounding of everyones heart as they watched in amazement. I’m glad Mashaba kept her dinner from these two opportunists!

I did not realise there was a video of this, just watched it, so funny its not very often you see a male lion up a tree, unreal, I am going to watch it again, I reckon this is a classic, who ever took the video well done

Thank you for this happy video. I am happy for the leopard. It was an stupid action by the Majingilane male that could have finished in some kind of injury when he descended.

Absolutely amazing! We were honored to witness camp pan take a kill up a tree not once but twice.. That was amazing.. I can only imagine watching ol black mane climb up that tree. Thank you for capturing the moment.

LOL! Great footage! Guess this incident gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “the cat’s up the tree!” Probably couldn’t call the fire department to rescue this cat! Fabulous! Thanks for sharing!

Nice video guys!, by the way i just watched a show called African Wild on Net Flix that was filmed on Londolozi in the begining you see one of the tailess lionesses and then 2 males laying in the grass, were those two a couple of the Majingilane? by the way the episode i watched that featured you guys was shot great and made me want to make reservations! thanx

What an incredible sighting. I’m so glad Dark-mane was able to get down without getting injured, or worse. I, too, don’t like thieves so I’m happy that Mashaba’s hard work wasn’t for naught and those boys will have to fend for themselves, rwl. Thank you for sharing this awesome sighting.
