I was at your wonderful Londolozi a little over a year ago, and was also wandering what happen to Dudley Riverbank female an her cub

The Dudley Riverbank female is still doing fine, and although the cub has not been viewed for some weeks, tracks of the two of them together have been found regularly in the deep south-east. The game-viewing further north, closer to camp, has been excellent of late, and not many vehicles have been making it all the way down into the Dudley Riverbank area to look for the pair.
Have a look at http://blog.londolozi.com/2013/03/the-dudley-riverbank-cub/ for a more detailed report on the Dudley Riverbank female and cub from a few weeks ago.

Thanks for the info! So we can presume that the cub is alive and well…

I would think so, but we will confirm the next time the cub is seen. Most leopard cub mortalities occur within their first year. Once they get past those first 12 months, the mortality rate drops off exponentially. The DRB cub was born in around April last year, so it is out of the woods as far as the statistics go…

Shardool a sad update is that the cub was killed by hyenas shortly after this blog went out, east of our boundary.
