We had a nice sighting of the Vomba young male in the evening of September 7th. We hope he just moved into his own territory.

Great info James. The maps are a nice addition. So many beautiful young female leopards but there is something exceptional about Mashaba Young Female. I feel privileged to have seen Tamboti Young Female grow up from thousands of miles away (although I’d rather have been there). Leopards do come and go but I am so much hoping that Vomba Young Male has just gone looking for a territory of his own.

Great blog James. I have a question about the old gen is the legend Camp pan still around I hope he is and still has a few months left but haven’t heard anything for about a month?

Question about the old gen is the legend that is Camp pan still going James? Haven’t heard anything on him for a bit. New generation is very exciting the future of your leopards is bright. Great Blog

Hi Blair,

Funny you should ask, Camp Pan was seen last night at the Causeway (crossing point on the Sand River) for the first time in years, then this morning he was found near camp, being chased by the Marthly male. This may mean he has been pushed out of his territory once and for all by the Piva male, but we’ll have to see…

Jeez its been about 2 and a half years since hes been up there if I am correct. Thank you for the update good to hear he is still alive he is very old now and if he’s back in the heart of his old territory maybe he has been pushed out by Piva but like you say we have to wait and see but he has surprised us many times before. Cheers James

Nice update. Thanks so much for the info on the Nanga young male. Love, love, love hearing about him and his mother, as well!

James, thank you so much for this wonderful blog; I’d been hoping you’d do something like this. When I stayed at Founders in September, I was fortunate enough to see several of these – the Nanga young male,Tutlwa young female and Mashaba young female – who I think I saw being conceived on a previous trip in April ’12, when I saw her parents mating! I’m also always delighted to hear of the Dudley Riverbank young female, as on that same trip I saw her as a 1 month old cub – incredible.
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you all, and see you again in October!
